The courses offered at Griffith are often reflected by the campus at which they are offered. While you'll find subjects like history, English, political science, and psychology at most campuses, there are also academic strengths that are reflected by the location of the campus. For example, the South Bank campus is located in the heart of Brisbane's cultural and entertainment district, and houses the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and Queensland College of Art. The Nathan Campus, surrounded by natural bushland, is an ideal location for those interested in environmental science as the campus serves as a great laboratory.
If your interest leans more toward hospitality and tourism, you'll want to give the Gold Coast campus a look because it is located in the heart of one of Australia's premier tourist destinations. Finally, the Mt Gravatt campus is an ideal setting for those interested in early childhood and music education and regular shuttle bus service means you have access to courses offered at the Nathan Campus which is less than five miles away.
While being physically separate, the campuses share many things. For example, almost all courses are worth four semester hour credits so you'll be taking four courses per semester and earning sixteen semester hours of credit. Students at South Bank, Nathan or Mt Gravatt share a Campus Life Office that provides dining and entertainment venues on all campuses as well as sporting facilities at Mt Gravatt and Nathan. The Student Guild on the Gold Coast campus provides the same types of facilities and services and even offers sporting clubs as widely varied as dragon boat racing and ice hockey. Regardless of the campus you choose, you'll find clubs and societies which offer an excellent way to integrate into Australia student life.
Accommodation is as varied as every other aspect of Griffith. While there is a bit of on-campus accommodation at Mt Gravatt and Nathan, most students choose to live in Arcadia-provided housing.
