      • Testimony
        2014-2016, Bachelor of Business (BBus)

        A great place for educational and personal growth

        I moved to Australia two years ago and started at Griffith University in semester 1, 2014. Since then my time at Griffith has been rewarding and really helped to develop me as a person and, in 2 months, as a graduate! I have really enjoyed getting involved in societies and groups such as the Griffith Honours College, the Griffith Business Student Association and the Academic Excellence Society. I have also taken advantage of the WIL program that has placed me in a great internship. Most importantly, I have had the opportunity to discover my passion (tertiary education) and to narrow my interest to working within the university itself upon graduation. Thanks for everything Griffith! Hopefully I'll be able to continue to be a part of the university community in a new role.

      • Testimony
        1989-1992, B.A. Humanities

        Something special

        I studies Humanities at Griffith University Nathan Campus 1989 - 1992, a while ago! Still, even with postgraduate studies and lots of professional study, I remember my time at Griffith as special. I still maintain both professional and personal relationships from that time. Truly a great experience that grounded me in multi-disciplinary approaches to problem solving.
