'After considering my options for study I had my heart set on Griffith University on the Gold Coast. I finished high school 7 years ago and found Griffith College (formerly QIBT) to be an excellent pathway to enter into Griffith University and pursue my studies and career.
The classes at Griffith College are smaller compared to Griffith University and there is a lot of one on one interaction. This really helps me to understand the content of my courses and is a great way to transition into higher education. Griffith College offers a lot of support and many resources to ensure your success in higher education.
My plan is to enter into Griffith University next year and begin my second year studying a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics.'
