Since opening its doors in 1975, Griffith University has come to be regarded as one of Australia's most innovative tertiary institutions and one of the most influential universities in the Asia-Pacific region.

We were the very first university in Australia to offer degrees in Asian studies and Environmental studies to our students and we remain a pioneer in these fields.

Opening initially with the one campus at Nathan and 451 students, the University now has five campuses spanning three cities, with the NathanMount Gravatt and South Bank campuses in Brisbane and campuses at Logan and on the Gold Coast

It has over 44,000 students and offers a full suite of undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees in the areas of business and government, criminology and law, education, engineering and information technology, environment, planning and architecture, health, humanities and languages, music, science and aviation, and visual and creative arts.
