Student support

Griffith Global Mobility proudly supports students who participate in a variety of overseas programs through the provision of:

  • a travel grant
  • coverage under Griffith's Corporate Travel Insurance
  • access to International SOS (24/7 emergency support)

By completing the Short-term Program Application (see below), you are applying for this support.

We generally seek to approve students provided that the program is deemed to meet our risk assessment requirements and complements your Griffith University studies.

Note: Before completing this application, you must first be accepted by the overseas program. If you are unsure about the suitability of the overseas program, please check with our office before confirming your place as you may be required to pay deposit fees.
