Griffith Uni Open Day: Your Guide for Each Campus
Not sure how to plan your Open Day?
Whether you’re in high school, graduated, considering postgraduate study or just want to visit for fun activities then Griffith’s Open Day is for you! This Sunday, July 23, is all about giving you the best options for your future career. Did you know that Griffith even has a Foundation First Year for a range of degrees so you can test the water before you dive in?
Whatever you decide, come along to have some fun. What makes Griffith’s Open Day even more exciting are the cool activities on campus (you even see a drone fly) and could be in with a chance to win Fast Lane tickets to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Swimming Finals (score!). On Open Day, you can explore Griffith’s Gold Coast, Nathan and South Bank campuses.

The Campus is situated on the edge of Toohey Forest and it’s a short walk or bus ride from Mount Gravatt Campus, or a 20-minute drive from Brisbane CBD. Shuttle buses are available between Nathan and South Bank throughout the day.
