An experience-based admission pathway

The Griffith Personal Statement offers an admission pathway into a number of undergraduate degrees. If you do not satisfy the minimum Selection Rank, or do not have the subject prerequisites for admission, you may be invited to complete the Griffith Personal Statement via QTAC or UAC.

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 student admission pathway for domestic applicants and is not available to Year 12 school leavers.

Statement criteria

The Griffith Personal Statement offers you the opportunity to apply for admission to Griffith on the basis of your skills and knowledge as well as your personal and professional competencies. Griffith is interested in you—not just your qualifications but you as a person. We would like to know more about the values, viewpoints, learning and leadership you have developed throughout your work and life experience.

The Griffith Personal Statement will ask you to answer a number of questions based on criteria we know are good predictors of success at university. Questions include attributes such as commitment, preparation, self-reflection and experience.

There are no right or wrong answers. We are looking for applicants who can demonstrate their capacity and commitment to study through self-reflection, creativity and independent thinking.

When you are offered a place at Griffith, you are also eligible to receive three of our Griffith Credentials (21st Century Skills)
