A leading university for international students
At Griffith Health, we are committed to helping international students make the most of their time in Australia by providing quality education, guidance and support. With a range of international partnerships that create a global network for students and graduates, Griffith Health continues to be a top choice for international students. South East Queensland’s beautiful climate and iconic landmarks, along with our reputation and world-class rankings, are just some of the many reasons international students choose to come to Griffith.
MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Professor Andrew Davey, Director of International (Health) studied pharmacy at Cardiff University, Wales and has held academic positions in Otago (NZ), South Australia and at Griffith University. He has extensive experience working with international partners, both onshore and offshore, including development of teaching, research and student mobility initiatives.
"The Global Health Sector is experiencing rapid growth which is underpinned by advances in technology and a re-defining of the way in which health care professionals work together for the benefit of the patient. At Griffith University we are ideally placed to equip students with the skills and experiences they need to succeed within their career. Industry and population growth around our campuses is amongst the highest in Australia which helps to create remarkable opportunities for Work Integrated Learning and building critical employability capabilities. This compliments our highly renowned Interprofessional Learning programs and ensures that our Health Graduates continue to be highly regarded within the workplace. We also have an extensive network of overseas partners that provide opportunities for students to gain unique international experiences."
SUPPORTING OUR STUDENTS
‘Griffith’s support services made my transition to Australia and its culture very smooth as help was always available as soon as I needed it. I clearly remember being worried about the different education style in Australia, especially referencing, but so many resources were available to guide me through it.’
Aayushi Gaur Master of Global Public Health
