Australia’s east coast is home to Griffith University, a public research university in South East Queensland. The first degrees in environmental science and Asian studies were offered in Australia at Griffith, which officially opened its doors in 1975 after being formed in 1971.
Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia and a two-time Premier of Queensland, is honoured by the name of the university. The primary author of the Australian constitution, Sir Samuel Griffith, was instrumental in the formation of the Federation of Australia.
To be a different kind of university, Griffith University was designed to question norms, adapt to trends, and invent answers through cutting-edge teaching and research. Their top-notch degrees, which were created in collaboration with industry, are intended to prepare students for the future. They are also taught by some of Australia’s most celebrated academics.
