At Griffith, we teach across three 12-week trimesters, rather than two semesters, each year, giving you more flexibility and control over your study. With a range of degrees available to start in Trimester 3, you might not need to wait until next year to start study.

Trimester 3 is not compulsory for all degrees. If you’re already a Griffith student, you might consider adding courses in Trimester 3 to your study load so you can graduate sooner. Or, you can opt for part-time study across three trimesters, which can give you more time for work and other commitments without adding too much time to the length of your degree.*

How to apply

Whether you're an international or domestic student, applying for study at Griffith is easy

At Griffith, we recognise that not everyone comes to university straight from high school. You might have completed TAFE or other studies first, transferred from a different university, had a gap year after school or decided to start a degree after years of work experience in a different field. We have students of all ages, from late teens and early 20s right through to mature age students in their 70s. More than half our new students are non-school leavers, which means we’re experienced at providing the support you need to achieve your goals, whatever your circumstances.

* Depending on availability for your chosen degree. Study load may affect your income support. If you’re a domestic student, contact Centrelink to find out more. If you’re an international student, contact us to find out about your situation.
