Start study this October
At Griffith, we teach across three 12-week trimesters, rather than two semesters, each year. Our trimester system offers you more flexibility and control, with the options of pacing your study to suit your needs, or fast-tracking your degree and getting a head start on your career.
And with multiple intakes each year, you can start when it suits you. Our next trimester begins in October so you don't need to wait until next year to start study.
Trimester 3 is not compulsory for all degrees. You might consider adding courses in Trimester 3 to your study load so you can graduate sooner. Or, you can opt for part-time study across three trimesters, which can give you more time for work and other commitments without adding too much time to the length of your degree*.
What can I study in Trimester 3?
The following degrees offer a Trimester 3 intake.
Please note, not all majors are available in every trimester. Check the degree information for more details and how to apply.

Starting university as a mature student
At Griffith, we recognise that not everyone comes to university straight from high school. You might have completed TAFE or other studies first, transferred from a different university, had a gap year after school or decided to start a degree after years of work experience in a different field. We have students of all ages, from late teens and early 20s right through to mature age students in their 70s. More than half our new students are mature students, which means we’re experienced at providing the support you need to achieve your goals, whatever your circumstances.
* Depending on availability for your chosen degree. Study load may affect your income support. If you’re a domestic student, contact Centrelink to find out more. If you’re an international student, contact us to find out about your situation.
