Griffith University is a large university located just south of Brisbane on Australia's Eastern Coast. The University has five campuses. One campus is located on the Gold Coast (approx. 30 minutes from the beach), and the other four campuses are inland, in or near the city of Brisbane. These four campuses enjoy close proximity to the nation's oldest art institution, the Queensland College of Art (QCA) and Australia's largest music school, the Queensland Conservatorium of Griffith University (QCGU). The majority of students attending Griffith University through SUNY Cortland are likely to attend the Gold Coast, Mt. Gravatt or Nathan Campuses, depending on their area of study.
International students are an integral part of Griffith University, and you will find yourself studying in a cosmopolitan setting with students from all four corners of the globe. Griffith offers extensive academic facilities, including state of the art teaching and research laboratories, computer laboratories, extensive library collections, academic support for international students and access to internet and email.
