Griffith is home to a diverse international profile of over 7,000 international students coming from over 127 countries.
Types of Agreements
The University has exchange agreements with more than 191 overseas institutions and memorandum of understanding with many of these partners for collaborations in research and other areas. A testament to Griffith's commitment to Internationalisation is the establishment by the Vice Chancellor of the International Experience Incentive Funds of $1 million per year, for Griffith students to go on exchange to our overseas partner universities. In return, by welcoming to Griffith a range of high quality students from overseas partner institutions for one or two semesters, we believe they greatly enhance the cultural diversity of the university's community.
Students can live overseas and fully experience the Australian lifestyle, culture, people and spectacular scenery all while earning credit toward their home degree. Griffith invites students to take advantage of everything Australia has to offer academically, culturally and geographically.
International students currently enrolled in a research higher degree in a university overseas may undertake a research project for one to three semesters under the Research Study Abroad program, provided they satisfy the program prerequisites.
Research Study Abroad students can study in the areas of study available to research higher degree students at Griffith. Credit gained at Griffith is transferred towards the student's degree at their home institution. Tuition fees are charged on a pro rata basis for the period of time actually spent studying at the University. For more information visit our Research website.
Griffith has many articulation arrangements with overseas institutions which provide pathway programs for students into Griffith undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs. A full list of credit transfer arrangements is available from the Credit for prior learning and articulation website.
