The School is dedicated to the pursuit of learning and teaching excellence

In line with the philosophy of the University's Academic Plan, that focuses on meeting the educational needs and aspirations of our constituent communities, we provide high-quality programs that enable students to be career-ready global citizens.

We aim to transform the student experience while paying particular attention to the quality of teaching, and to academic standards. We recognise that our students come from diverse backgrounds and therefore we provide them with the support that they need for success.Our staff highly value each students' learning experience and many of our staff have received Learning and Teaching awards.


We have a range of scholarships for current students.

Our culture

We foster an innovative learning and teaching culture through strategies that engage students to become learning-centred, evidence-based, collaborative, adaptable, and professionally accountable in their practice, and that positively recognise and reward their achievements and contributions.

Creating space for innovation

Meeting community demand for allied health degree programs in Brisbane has been the impetus behind the opening of a new facility at Griffith University’s Nathan campus. The Nathan campus School of Allied Health Sciences, which houses the new Allied Health Programs, is located in a  refurbished building that boasts two state-of-the-art research laboratories, dedicated specialist teaching laboratories, simulated learning areas and a vibrant multidisciplinary breakout area.

Achievements driving academics

Created by Lecturer Simone Howells and the Griffith University Master of Speech Pathology students, Beyond The Blender is a cookbook that has been developed for people with swallowing difficulties, known as dysphagia. Aiming to bring the joy back into mealtimes with easy to cook and easy to swallow recipes, the book has been divided into three simple to navigate categories and can be downloaded below.
