About

Since 1996 we have been helping students accelerate their academic achievements. More than 20,000 students needing additional support and qualifications to progress to university life have successfully passed through our doors and onto a degree.

Our university-designed, one-year diplomas are structured to provide the same amount of Credit Points as the first year’s degree study at Griffith University. That means the majority of Griffith College students are able to progress directly to the second year of their degree at Griffith University, or gain credit towards their first year’s study. Check each Diploma for the pathways and credit offered.

Rapid progress, in a relaxed environment

The speed of progress that our students achieve doesn’t mean they ever feel rushed or pressured. We know that the best way to give students a head start is to provide a comfortable, confidence-building learning environment.

Our small class sizes and tailored support services mean that every student receives the individual attention and guidance they need to tackle any challenges with confidence.

A friendly, welcoming campus environment means new arrivals feel at home instantly.

We’re proud to provide our students with the structure and support they need to get a head start on the degree and career of their dreams.
