International Baccalaureate studies
Griffith University awards credit into a range of undergraduate degree programs for studies completed in an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. Students must achieve a passing grade in the IB subject considered equivalent to the University course.
You can receive credit up to the equivalent of one full-time trimester of University study. The amount of credit awarded will be determined based upon the IB subjects studied and the Griffith program you have been admitted to.
This credit will allow you to either accelerate your University degree or reduce your University workload in certain trimesters.
Further information about the pathways into Health programs for IB diploma students is available from the Griffith Health website.
