The online learning environment is called Learning@Griffith, where we provide a website for every course, containing all of the learning materials you will need to successfully complete your studies.
Depending on how your course is structured you will have a combination of recorded lectures, tutorials, discussions, and possibly online group work and activities.
You are able to interact with your classmates and teachers through the live classrooms and discussion boards, as well as a range of social media.
All your assessment will also be delivered and submitted online. How your assessments are managed will depend on your program's requirements.
Using the Microsoft Teams platform that is free for all Griffith students, you will be able to connect with fellow commencing students from the same study area.
Returning to on-campus learning
When we are able to safely return to campus, on-campus teaching will recommence. We understand that it will take longer for international students to arrive in Australia and join in on-campus learning, so online teaching will continue with enough time to allow students to arrive onshore in sunny Queensland. We are excited to meet you on campus and help you transition to life in Australia and support you to have a successful journey at university - we’re with you all the way.
Stay social and connected
We are ensuring we stay connected more than ever through a range of helpful platforms and online communities and support to assist with your studies and to welcome you into our community.
Griffith Mates is a vibrant team of current Australian and international students from across the world. The team welcomes thousands of international students each year, helping them adjust to university life through a range of community events and activities. Connecting with Griffith Mates is a great way to practise English, make new friends and learn how to navigate your way through university life.
The Griffith Mates program is delivering its signature activities online by offering a series of virtual coffee catch ups, live webinars, competitions and more.
International student buddy program
The International Student Buddy Program matches new international students with experienced local students (Senior Buddies) for social support meetings once a week. Sessions are currently being held online and are designed to help ease the transition to uni life and provide a safe and comfortable environment for new international students to ask questions about Griffith, studying online, life in Australia, as well as practise English. It's also a great way to make friends!
