Griffith University is a public research university in Queensland, situated on the East coast of Australia. It is still a relatively young university, having been formally established in 1971 and first opening its doors for students in 1975.
The university started with one campus in the Brisbane suburb of Nathan with 451 students. It has now expanded to five campuses across three cities: Gold Coast campus, Logan Campus, Nathan Campus, Mount Gravatt Campus and the South Bank Campus.
The teaching at Griffith University is structured across four academic groups, with a number of disciplines within each group. These groups are arts, education and law, business, health and science. Across these schools around 200 degrees are available at undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD level.
The university has around 120 student clubs and societies available including the Pride society, the gamer's club, the racing team, the acapella society and the Griffith Government and International Relations Society.
