Griffith offers 10,000 undergraduate places

Griffith is meeting new and emerging student needs, says Professor Adam Shoemaker.
Professor Adam Shoemaker says Griffith continues to build its reputation as a highly competitive university.

More than 10,000 prospective students have received their offer to study at Griffith University in 2015.

The ‘main round’ of university placement offers will be made through QTAC (Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre) and UAC (University Admissions Centre – NSW) on Thursday January 15, 2015, delivering good news to thousands of aspiring students.

Academic Provost Professor Adam Shoemaker said the volume of offers from Griffith reflected strong demand for the University’s education programs.

“The University is very pleased with the strength and quality of demand during the January 2015 main round admission selection period,” Professor Shoemaker said.

The growth trajectory set by Griffith over the last few years is again reflected at the academic school level, with various departments already full. In 2015, Griffith’s Health Sciences programs have once again proven to be amongst those in highest demand. They include Bachelor of Medical Science, Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and Bachelor of Nursing and Midwifery.

“Griffith continues to build its reputation as a highly competitive university and the one of choice for many students opting for a career in the health science arena,” Professor Shoemaker said.

Degrees at Griffith’s South Bank campus, including Music, Film and Television and Design are increasingly popular this year while Business degrees on the Gold Coast continue to grow, reflecting the investment last year in the new $48m business building there.

Still time

For those applicants who miss out on first round offers, the message is clear; don’t despair.

There is still time to change preferences and Griffith expects to be in a position to make additional offers to well-qualified applicants across a range of programs in subsequent admission rounds continuing through February.

Griffith University is one of Australia’s most innovative tertiary institutions and one of the most influential universities in the Asia-Pacific region.

Griffith now offers more than 300 degrees across five campuses and is home to more than 45,000 students from 131 countries. Griffith is Australia’s ninth largest higher education provider and is ranked in the top five per cent in the world.
