What we hear about Griffith University

Griffith University has 5 campuses in sunny South East Queensland including Gold Coast, Nathan, Logan, Mt Gravatt and South Bank. Both the Gold Coast and Nathan have higher attendances by students.

While it is not often seen as having the reputation as other South East Queensland Universities, Griffith seems to be liked overall by students via our reviews and ratings across most measures.

Some of the top advice from student reviews include getting involved in the University (groups & societies), make friends for group work and try to utilise lecturers and tutors to help with industry experience.

Read Griffith University Reviews

Positives: The course has great subjects and the University makes a massive effort to get teachers to teach the subject that have experience in that area or are deans of research on the subject. So you feel like you are getting taught by people who really know their stuff

Negatives: There are some courses which are similar to others so you cover the same content within a couple of subjects

My advice to future students is: To definitely take the course if they are interested in government and international relations. I would say go in with an open mind and take the degree course by course. Sometimes you feel overwhelmed (especially if you are younger) as politics and the history of it are complex but hang in there!

I did honours as well.

Positives: Lecturing and research staff were very engaging and always available to discuss course content or career outcomes. The material was fresh and up to date. The lectures were interesting. Content was delivered thoughtfully and in a way that involved the students as much as possible

Negatives: No negatives, I love it. The only fault I could find is that Griffith doesn't have the name of UQ or QUT. However, in this particular field, Griffith does amazing work and gets good recognition.

My advice to future students is: Utilise your lecturers and researchers for advice and hands on experience like tutoring, internships etc. Get involved as much as possible. Make good use of the excellent online system.
