Once your acceptance is finalised, you will receive information about accessing the digital campus (i.e., student portal). The digital Campus is where you can access your course pages, manage your enrolment, access to support services including booking appointments, receive important updates, and access any forms you may need during your studies.

You  will not be able to commence your studies until you are enrolled, so reach out if you are unsure.

The week before your classes commence, we will host Orientation. This is your opportunity to meet key staff, receive important information about your program, discover your support services, and get assistance with any IT or timetable questions you might have.

I chose to study at Griffith College because of how easily I could transition into Griffith University. I needed a good support network away from home and Griffith College provides just that
