Established in 1971, Griffith University officially opened its doors in 1975 in South East Queensland with only 451 students on 1 campus with 4 schools: Humanities, Science, Environmental Studies, and Modern Asian Studies. In addition, this was the first university in Australia to introduce Asian Studies and Environmental Studies degrees. This university stood out among the others due to their unique way of teaching – disregarding a disciplinary and traditional approach to course design and research.Show more
20 years after, there was an expansion due to a series of reforms in Australia, resulting in a union of colleges and universities. Therefore, in 1990, the Mount Gravatt Teacher’s College and the Gold Coast College of Advanced Education became official campuses of Griffith University. One year later, the Queensland Conservatorium of Music also became an official part of Griffith University, and in 1992 the last expansion was made, with the Queensland College of Art also becoming part of Griffith University.
In 1998, Logan Campus was opened in Meadowbrook, south of Brisbane. This campus was established to specifically address the needs of the Logan City area.

I came to Griffith as an international student who wanted to do a PhD in Physics. Griffith had a culture of making everyone feel like belonging to the campus community. I did not feel like I am in a foreign country as everyone around was friendly and supportive. As a PhD student, I did not have to attend classes, but I used to work as a tutor for a course and it was so much fun to help other students! I am sure Griffith has a really good class atmosphere and the necessary facilities. Though, the library seemed small to me, in terms of the number and variation of books available.
The program was exactly what I was looking for it had the right amounts of theory practical and even good exposure in terms of presentations The professors were generally very supportive and always available Sometimes assignments were a bit prescriptive it might have been interesting to have more projects that [...]

I got one-course last semester which is using the tool to analyze the business It magically connects art and business which is very interesting because those two areas seem irrelevant View more
