How to Make the Most of Your Time at Griffith College

Experience the Beautiful Australian Culture

As an international student from India, at Griffith University in Australia, I have experienced some ups and downs in adjusting to the new way of life in a new country altogether. I still remember the first day at the university and feeling a bit new and disoriented, however, I have had tremendous support and guidance from the staff and also my fellow college students at the university in helping me transition to my new life and experience the Beautiful Australian Culture and way of life first hand. I have had a lot of experiences and got a lot of tips during my stay at the university and here is my way of paying it forward.

Be sure to take Part in the Campus Tour at Orientation

Orientation is a great way to learn about the University and its campus. Orientation is provided by Griffith University for all its students including students who have come here for overseas education. When I came here, I was surprised to find that Griffith University while Studying in Australia has a vast multi-facility campus comprising of many different and imposing buildings. There are separate rooms for conducting lectures and separate rooms for workshops and yet others for lab work. Taking part in the campus tour during orientation helped me to learn all about the different buildings and navigate my way through them easily. In case you miss the campus tour on Orientation Day, do not fret, you can avail of campus tours through the Griffith Mates campus tours.

The Workshops are great learning opportunities - Make the most of them

At Griffith University we students used to take part in various workshops that were related to our subject. These workshops which are of 50-minute duration can be a great way for learning more about the subject in-depth and to gain new perspectives. However to make the most of the workshops I have found that it is useful to prepare the learning materials and questions well in advance so that I can make use of my time effectively at the workshop. I have also found it useful to have a one on one session with my tutors in case I have any queries that were not addressed in the lectures or in the class.

Market Days are a Must See Experience

Market Days are conducted on the campus every fortnight. On market days, we enjoy free food, complimentary massage and tattoos, and discount coupons for various outlets. We can also buy accessories and clothes at throw away prizes from any of the many kiosks that come up on market day. Market day is also the day when you get to know about the various clubs at Griffith University. Griffith has a number of clubs which include cultural, social, learning and networking clubs. Truly, market day is an experience one must certainly not miss when on Campus at Griffith.

There are Plenty of Options for Food on-campus

During my years at Griffith, I have found that there are enough eating out options on campus to satisfy any taste bud and diet requirements. Whether you are a meat eater or a strict vegan, whether you eat kosher or Jain, you are bound to find something to fill you up on campus. There are various delicious cuisines to select from on the campus. The Hobbit, Dan Noodle House, and Indian Brothers are some of the yummy food outlets that come to mind when I think about food Fon campus at Griffith. I was lucky to have a Great Consultancy Global Tree that guided me through the application process and helped me to achieve my dream of Studying at Griffith University.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
