Due to the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated closure of Australian borders, Griffith University has suspended all outbound, in-country programs until further notice. In the interim, we encourage you to explore our range of online experiences, which are eligible for funding to support your program fee. We also invite you to review our overseas mobility experiences and continue planning, so you are prepared for when outbound travel becomes available.

All programs will be reviewed prior to delivery in relation to travel advisories and student health and safety, and may not proceed if the University is not confident of both or cannot provide comprehensive insurance coverage. We recommend that students do not book travel until the program is confirmed and we will endeavour to do this as far as possible in advance.
