API at Griffith University in Gold Coast

Griffith University was founded in 1971 with the goal of offering new degrees in progressive fields and integrating immersive teaching. It has since grown in to a large, comprehensive, and research-intensive university, ranking in the top 3% of universities worldwide with many areas of study in the world’s top 50. Griffith’s strong teaching focus has been rewarded by having Australia’s #1 university teacher for the past two years, and 5 QS starts for graduate employability, as well as offering community internship positions to all study abroad students. 

API students at Griffith will be able to take courses in a number of subject areas, including business, criminology, education, health, sciences, tourism and hospitality, and more! Students can take courses at the Brisbane campuses (Nathan, South Bank, Mt. Gravatt), or the Gold Coast Campus.

Set amongst native bushland and located just minutes from the pristine beaches of the famous Gold Coast, the Griffith Gold Coast campus hosts over 16,500 students from all over Australia and the world. Widely acknowledged for its strengths in heath studies, Griffith’s Gold Coast Campus boasts state-of-the-art facilities, including a modern health center and hospital.

API awards approximately $500,000 in study abroad scholarships annually ranging from $250 -$1,000 per student.
