We’ve made our mark delivering innovative degrees that meet the ever-changing needs of students, industry and the community

We introduced the first Asian studies, environmental science, forensic science, aviation, Australian Indigenous arts, dental technology and suicide-prevention degrees in Australia.

We are also a pioneer in online education and progressive teaching methods, and remain open to new ways of thinking.

A comprehensive university, Griffith offers more than 200 degrees across all disciplines, with the vigour to remain remarkable now and into the future.

Online Education

We've always embraced innovative teaching methods that address the constantly shifting learning styles of students. That's why we were an early adopter of online education. Our aviation degrees—the first of their kind in Australia—have offered online study options for students since 1997. In collaboration with our partners, we’re one of Australia's largest providers of online education.

Innovative teaching

At Griffith, students learn in new teaching spaces designed to inspire creativity, promote collaboration and encourage innovation. Students have the opportunity to enhance their learning through work placements, overseas field trips, clinical education, industry projects for real clients, or laboratory studies in our state-of- the-art facilities.

We've also introduced blended learning initiatives, library workshops and training, and dedicated student success advisors to empower students to find the knowledge needed to achieve their goals. Through our work-integrated learning programs, students put what they learn in the classroom into practice and gain industry skills and knowledge.
