An experience-based admission pathway

If you do not satisfy the minimum Selection Rank, or do not have the subject prerequisites for admission, the Griffith Personal Statement offers an admission pathway into a number of undergraduate degrees.

We understand success at university is about much more than completing a qualification. It’s about enabling you to bring the power of all your personal, work and life skills to your studies. We want to work with you to bring out the very best of you through your unique study experience at Griffith.

Please note this is a mature age admission pathway for domestic applicants and is not available to Year 12 school leavers.
