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.

Positives were the flexibility of the course, it was interesting and I learnt a lot. Negatives were some aspects were boring, the structure wasn't the best and there was no requirement to go to classes which meant that students learnt less as there was no requirement to show up.

My advice to future students - To think about the field of IT you want to go into before you graduate

Positives: Focuses on teaching students the essentials of IT rather than technical stuff, which would be taught to you in the workplace anyway. A wider range of topics helps with pursuing employment opportunities

Negatives: It's a bit too packed and would be better off as a 4 year course. They expect very quick learning and this can cause students with no prior experience to fall behind. The educational staff are also sometimes very lax.

My advice to future students is: Take some programming courses early. If you don't like programming or don't have a mind for it, either don't do the degree or try to catch up.
