Direct entry registration

If you are a Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander interested in enrolling in a Griffith degree, you can either apply for Direct Entry below or via QTAC or UAC.

Our Direct Entry program is an initiative for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders seeking to study at Griffith. The program enables eligible applications to be assessed on any formal qualifications, life experiences and other transferable skills that support your Griffith enrolment application. Potential students can also speak directly with our staff about Griffith courses.

Study assistance

We facilitate the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Tutorial Assistance Program, which aims to improve educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. Through the program, eligible students are matched with tutors to help them achieve the best possible outcomes in their courses. If you're an eligible student, or a tutor, we encourage you to register.
