"Griffith is an exciting place to start your career
Griffith is set up to ensure that students individual needs are met, and that goals are supported realistically through the support systems available. Griffith is quite a culturally diverse space that safely allows for expression of individuality. I don't think I would rather be studying anywhere else to be honest."
