A highly ranked university with an international outlook, we’re deeply connected to our community and value our place in it. Our research excellence, innovative teaching and learning practices, along with our strong ties to industry, make us one of the leading providers of higher education in the Asia–Pacific. We also continue the progressive traditions of our namesake, Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, who was twice the Premier of Queensland, the first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia, and the principal author of the Australian Constitution.

Griffith ranks highly as a young university, ranking 37th in the 2015–2016 QS University Rankings: Top 50 Under 50 and 48th in the 2015 Times Higher Education Top 150 under 50. Being a young university means we have the freedom to respect tradition without being restricted by it, which gives us the flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing needs of students, industry and the community. We’ve introduced Australia’s first degrees in a wide range of important areas, from Asian studies and environmental science to dental technology and forensic science. We were also quick to adopt online education, and have offered online study options for almost 20 years.
