The Courier-Mail - Career One - - Postgraduate Study Guide | Advertising Feature -

F you don’t meet the en­try re­quire­ments for univer­sity, did you know there are other op­tions that will keep you on track to achiev­ing your study goals? Grif­fith Col­lege of­fers one-year diploma path­ways pro­vid­ing en­try to sec­ond year of the as­so­ci­ated Grif­fith bach­e­lor de­gree so you lose no time in grad­u­at­ing.

Cur­rent stu­dent, Ser­ena Herr is study­ing a Diploma of Arts and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

“My grades weren’t high enough for di­rect en­try to the Bach­e­lor of Jour­nal­ism so I needed to find a path­way op­tion,” she said.

“I am glad that I am study­ing at Grif­fith Col­lege first as I am learn­ing count­less skills and there is so much sup­port to help me to de­velop them fur­ther.”

While Ser­ena chose arts and com­mu­ni­ca­tion, more than 14,000 other stu­dents have pro­gressed to Grif­fith Univer­sity through a range of other Grif­fith Col­lege path­ways in­clud­ing nurs­ing, en­gi­neer­ing, de­sign, ho­tel man­age­ment, com­merce and busi­ness, and health sci­ences.

The most pop­u­lar pro­grams, Diploma of Crim­i­nol­ogy and Crim­i­nal Jus­tice and Diploma of So­cial and Psy­cho­log­i­cal Sci­ence are now of­fered on both the Mt Gra­vatt and Gold Coast cam­puses al­low­ing more stu­dents to ac­cess these study ar­eas.

So why are Grif­fith Col­lege stu­dents so suc­cess­ful? The diploma path­ways are equiv­a­lent to univer­sity-level study, and are de­liv­ered in a sup­port­ive and spe­cialised learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment to bet­ter pre­pare stu­dents for suc­cess in their bach­e­lor de­gree. With smaller classes, stu­dents re­ceive more oneon-one at­ten­tion from teach­ing staff

Com­pre­hen­sive aca­demic sup­port also in­cludes study skills work­shops, peer-as­sisted learn­ing, and ac­cess to one-on-one con­sul­ta­tion with teach­ers and ad­vi­sors to re­view class work and pre­pare as­sign­ments.

The col­lege is lo­cated on the Grif­fith Univer­sity Mt Gra­vatt and Gold Coast cam­puses, so stu­dents be­come part of the Grif­fith com­mu­nity from day one, with ac­cess to many fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices.
