University doesn't have to be daunting. Find out how you can transition successfully.
We aim to support students from diverse backgrounds who may have experienced educational disadvantage. If you are the first person in your family to go to university there is plenty of support.
If you're enrolled at Griffith for the first time you can book an appointment with us to discuss your needs. You can also explore the range of services and supports offered at Griffith and visit the First in Family website.
