In 1997, Griffith College opened its doors on the Mount Gravatt (Brisbane) campus of Griffith University, to 98 students who were enrolled across 4 diplomas (Commerce, Hotel Management, IT and Design) and a tertiary preparation program.  Since then, 8 more diplomas, an associate degree in Commerce and Business, and a non-award foundation and masters qualifying programs have been added to the suite of study options offered by the College. Due to the expansion of these programs, Griffith College opened a second site, on the University’s Southport (Gold Coast) campus.

All programs at Griffith College are delivered in face-to-face mode, on campus, within the College’s two purpose-built buildings.  As a University partner, we share campus services such as the library, computer labs, outlets, fitness and clubs, as well as specialist facilities such as simulated nursing wards, science laboratories, art studios, and a range of support services.

Tuition & Finances


  • An estimate of the average annual cost of living for international students is over $20,000, including accommodation, food, transport, phone and internet. However, depending on your preferences this amount could be lower or higher.
  • Further details on costs for different types of accommodation are provided below.
  • In addition to this you will need to plan for set up costs when you first arrive, which could be around $1500 to $2000. This will include your airport transfer costs, plus you may need to pay an accommodation/rental bond, purchase furniture and basic homewares and connect to electricity, gas and the internet.
  • Finally, ensure you have budgeted for the required textbooks for each course you undertake. Student expenses such as these may be around $300-$400 per trimester. Please bring your own laptop/tablet or purchase one when you arrive to engage in learning with technology. To purchase your laptop/tablet in Australia, budget for $800.
