Young and ambitious
Griffith ranks highly as a young university, ranking 35th in the 2019 QS World University Rankings: Top 50 Under 50 and 37th in the 2018 Times Higher Education Young University Rankings.

We’ve introduced Australia’s first degrees in a wide range of important areas, from Asian studies and environmental science to dental technology and forensic science. We were also quick to adopt online education, and have offered online study options for almost 20 years.
