Griffith University was designed to do things differently—and has proudly been doing so for almost 50 years. From pioneering degrees in fields such as modern Asian studies and environmental science to its long-standing commitment to inclusivity, social justice and sustainable practices, Griffith has always focused on creating a brighter future for all.
A lot has changed in the past five decades, but Griffith’s commitment to a better tomorrow remains as strong and as relevant as ever. That’s why it engages in teaching and research that creates positive, meaningful change in the lives of its students, their families and friends, and the whole of society.
Today, the University offers more than 200 undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees, developed in consultation with industry, across business, medicine, dentistry and health, education, law, sciences, humanities, and the creative arts. Ranked in the top 2 per cent of universities worldwide, the University features prominently in national teaching awards and citations. Griffith has also consistently rated highly as a young university, appearing regularly in the QS Top 50 Under 50 university rankings and Times Higher Education Young University Rankings.
In the 2018 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) results, Griffith was rated at world standard or above in 59 specific fields of research, 20 of which were rated at the highest possible standard. This reflects its ambitious and innovative research that draws together a network of disciplines and partners to find solutions to some of the most significant social, cultural and environmental challenges of our time.
