The transition from high school to university is a challenging time for most students so it’s helpful to know what you can expect of the learning environment at Griffith College.

  • Comprehensive orientation and enrolment day where students will have the chance to choose their subjects.
  • Students will be encouraged to become independent learners that think critically about the concepts and theories offered to them.
  • Extra academic support is available to all students outside of class hours in the form of workshops, catch-up classes, and one-on-one tuition.


There are many accommodation options available to students living in Brisbane. Stay in college accommodation and walk to campus, find your own accommodation in a suburb of your choice or stay with an Australian family in a homestay. Whatever you decide we can provide accommodation support and advice about living in Brisbane and the Gold Coast.


Homestay gives you the opportunity to live with an Australian family while you study. This is a great way to develop your English language skills and experience life in Australia. All furniture and meals are provided.
