5. Free Airport Pickup

As part of our scholarship offerings, we can arrange for someone to pick you up from the airport. They will hold up your name and wait for you so you will have safe and efficient transport to your accommodation.

6. Student Learning Advisors

Once you arrive, we have a team of advisors ready to assist you to get settled in and find their way around campus.

You can always reach out to our advisors if you need any kind of help in future. To book a time, hop on to the Digital Campus, navigate to “Support” and then “Book an Appointment”.

7. Laptops

Laptops are essential. As an important part of your study experience at Griffith College, you may either bring a laptop with you or purchase one in Australia. Having a laptop will allow you to engage with your learning material, complete required course assessment and remain up to date with college communications.
