Success stories

At Griffith, we recognise that not everyone comes to university straight from high school. More than half of our new students are non-school leavers, which means we're experienced at providing the support you need to achieve your goals, whatever your circumstances.

Wendy Zernike - Master Business Administration

Wendy Zernike, MBA

After more than 25 years in healthcare in roles ranging from frontline nursing through to various educational roles, Wendy Zernike still has a voracious appetite for learning. The Wesley Hospital Director of Clinical Education completed a Griffith Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Management four years ago and was ready to take on the challenge of studying again. She enrolled in the Griffith MBA, but as a mother working full-time, she wasn’t entirely sure how she was going to afford it. She applied for, and won, a Griffith MBA Scholarship for Women, making her return to study much easier.

Chris McMahon, Bachelor of Journalism

Chris McMahon, Bachelor of Journalism

Chris was 24 when he started a Bachelor of Journalism (Public Relations, Film and Screen) at Griffith University. 'Once I was finished travelling, I thought why not become a sports journalist because I spent my life surrounded by sport,' he says. 'It was during my study that I developed an interest in crime and human interest news.' Graduating in 2013, Chris was awarded a cadetship at The Courier-Mail in Brisbane before becoming a crime reporter for the Townsville Bulletin. He is now chief of staff there, overseeing a newsroom of 12 journalists and five photographers.
