GHC students talk about their remarkable experiences
As a Townsville teenager with a rebellious streak, it took some time for Kimberley Bates to start the journey to university. 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.
Meet Caitlene Hillman, Griffith Honours College student, AFR Top 100 Future Leader and Griffith business student. First-hand experiences during her degree have prepared her for the future of business.
Peter Avetisoff left school in year nine and endured a 15-year drug addiction. Today, he is a high-achieving student at Griffith University and a member of Griffith Honours College. He is studying a Bachelor of Counselling. Peter says, "I want to do something profound to help people."
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.
