Teaching and learning

Griffith College Diploma courses are the same level as those for the relevant first undergraduate degrees offered at Griffith University. Australian citizens and permanent residents can study part-time. International students must study full-time (minimum of 3 units and maximum of 4 units) in order to meet visa conditions.

Griffith College operates on a three semester system with three intakes per year- February, June and October. If you are studying full-time you will study three or four units per semester. The units you will need to complete in order to receive your diploma are outlined in the program details for each Diploma course.

All classes are four hours duration. The first two hours consists of a lecture. The final two hours are allocated to tutorials, workshops or computer laboratory sessions. There is some variation in this structure according to the nature of the individual courses and specific requirements.

While Griffith College teaching staff are available to help you with your studies, it is up to you to manage your time effectively in order to complete your study. Each unit will vary in requirements with some units have a mix of exams and assignments and others with assignments only.
