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.
Share ideas and work with leading researchers, academics and other high-achieving students. The Student-Led Initiative Committee also organises regular social activities.
Undertake practical professional training coordinated by your School or Faculty to place you in a high-quality organisation related to your area of study.
Honours College students interested in undertaking a short research project can apply for funded research experience opportunities.
