Tyrone’s in a league of his own

The perfect balance...study and sport

Tyrone Girle completed a Masters of Human Services at Griffith University’s Logan campus and now works as a Youth Support Coordinator for Beenleigh State High School.

“I chose Griffith for my studies because of its programs for students from varying backgrounds.”

“I really liked how the courses were structured and I got a lot of practical experience. University life seemed daunting in the beginning but the support from staff really helped make me feel comfortable,” he said.

For Tyrone, the opportunity to become the first academic achiever in his family and circle of friends was a strong motivation for him to study.

“Since I’ve completed my studies I feel I havegiven hope tofriends and relatives who once didn’t think uni was achievable togive it a shot. I landed my job straight out of my degree, which was awesome.”

A key highlight of Tyrone’s studies was being a part of the Griffith Logan Redbacks RLC.

“I love my sport, especially rugby league. I definitely recommend getting involved in as many activities as possible during your degree.”

His advice for anyone contemplating study?

“What have you got to lose, enrol you won’t regret it.”
