GHC student Kimberley Bates talks about her experiences at Griffith

Griffith Honours College student Kimberly Bates

As a Townsville teenager with a rebellious streak, it took some time for Kimberley Bates to start the journey to university. By the time she reconnected with education and worked her way to Griffith she feared she might have left it too late. Seven years down the track, her understanding of a university degree and what it can do for someone’s life is an entirely different picture, one with depth and colour and one without borders.

Opportunities

The Griffith Honours College experience will give you the skills and experiences to help you stand out from the crowd when you graduate. As an Honours College student, you'll also have the opportunity to attend a number of optional activities throughout the year. These activities will be selected to enrich your University experience and professional development. Examples include critical-thinking workshops based on popular culture, model united nations conferences and local volunteering opportunities.

Receive guidance

You will be supported in your career goals, as each Honours College student will be matched with a mentor. Take part in regular one-on-one sessions and receive personal attention throughout your degree.

Your mentor will assist in selecting the right experiences for you to develop your skills personally and professionally. Depending on your future aspirations, you may be matched with a leading Griffith researcher, academic or an external industry partner.
