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 and will be available soon.
