How to apply
How to apply
1. Select your degree
Explore our comprehensive range of degrees available at our study website.
2. Check entry requirements
Check the entry requirements specific to your chosen degree via our study website. Applications are assessed on eligibility (subject prerequisites and other entry criteria) and merit ( OP, ATAR or Rank). Some degrees may require you to meet additional criteria, including audition, interview or portfolio.
OP, ATAR, IB and Rank
An Overall Position (OP) is the tertiary entrance rank assigned to eligible Year 12 students in Queensland based on their performance in senior secondary school subjects. An Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR)is the rank assigned to eligible Year 12 students in other Australian states and territories. Some high schools also offer the Diploma of the International Baccalaureate program. If you do not have OP, ATAR or IB, you can still receive an admissions rank on the basis of previous secondary schooling, tertiary, bridging and preparatory studies, tertiary admissions tests or work experience and qualifications.
Assumed prior knowledge
For most Griffith degrees, an English subject is the only prerequisite. Some degrees assume you have studied certain subjects at school and that you’ll be able to build on this knowledge at university. Check out our pages on assumed prior knowledge.
3. Check fees and scheme duration
You can find indicative fees for specific degrees via our study website. Domestic students studying an undergraduate degree may be eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place. This means you pay a student contribution for your degree with the majority of the cost covered by the Australian Government. You can visit our fees and charges section to find out more about costs.
Most of our undergraduate degrees can be completed in three years when studied full time. Check out the study website to see the duration of your chosen program.
From 2017, we’ll be teaching across three trimesters, rather than two semesters, which gives you the flexibility to pace your study to suit your needs. You will have greater flexibility as well as the ability to fast-track your degree by studying in our new trimester teaching periods.
4. International students
If you are an international student studying at an Australian high school you may also apply directly through Griffith University.
5. Lodge your application
Lodge your application via either QTAC or UAC and place your Griffith programs within your preferences.
If you intend to study at the Gold Coast campus, we recommend that you apply either via QTAC or UAC and not both. If you're eligible, you'll still receive your offer with us and you'll save on application fees.
6. Accept your offer and enrol
If you are successful in securing a direct offer with us, congratulations! If you apply through QTAC or UAC, you will be sent a 'Notice of Offer' and all you need to do is accept the offer and enrol at Griffith by the due date as per the instructions in your offer letter. Griffith will send you enrolment information separately.
7. Check available scholarships
Whether you are a high-achieving student, elite athlete or need some financial assistance, we have scholarships that recognise and reward your accomplishments, and scholarships that can help you achieve your goals and dreams. Visit our scholarships page to find out what you’re eligible for.
Our admission schemes can boost your OP, ATAR or Rank and improve your chances of gaining a place at Griffith.
