The Griffith Graduate

The Griffith Graduate of Influence stands out for the wide range of transferable skills that they develop throughout their studies

Graduates require a broad range of attributes and skills to make a positive difference in their local and global communities. Graduate Attributes represent the broad qualities that are necessary for students to contribute meaningfully to their communities. These attributes are underpinned by a range of transferable skills that employers look for when recruiting, and can be developed through assessment and learning experiences.

Additional resources are currently under development. Visit again in the future to see these new resources.
