Griffith University's first campus opened in 1975 with 451 enrolled students. Today we are a multi-campus university with more than 50,000 students from over 130 countries. What has not changed is our range of relevant, internationally focused degrees that prepare graduates for incredible careers.
At Griffith, we provide a different type of education. For 40 years we have pioneered cutting-edge, forward-thinking programs in diverse study areas. We were the first university in Australia to recognise the importance of, and introduce degrees in, globally significant fields such as environmental studies, Asian studies and international business.
Griffith University has five campuses in South East Queensland: Gold Coast, Logan, Mt Gravatt, Nathan and South Bank.
