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.
How to apply
1. Find an overseas program
The first step is for you to find and apply for, and be accepted into, an overseas program.>
If you already have been accepted into a program (e.g. a study tour), please continue to the next steps.
If you do not have a program already in mind, you can browse our database for inspiration. However, you are not limited to the programs listed on the database.
2. Check your eligibility for support
In order to receive support from Griffith Global Mobility, you typically must:
- have a GPA of 4.5 or above at the time of registration
- be currently enrolled on-campus
- have already completed a minimum 10CP at Griffith University
If you do not meet the above requirements, please contact us as there may be flexibility depending on the type of program you are undertaking
Are you an international student?
International students are generally not supported by Griffith Global Mobility to undertake an overseas experience in their home country. Special consideration may be awarded depending on the program experience.

- overseas program acceptance/proof of participation
- unofficial transcript
- passport copy (with 6 months validity after your return to Australia)

There is no finite deadline to submit your application, however it must be completed prior to your departure (we recommend at least six week beforehand).
