Founding Member: Griffith University

Griffith University is one of the 26 Founding Members of the MSM Higher Ed Pathways initiative.

Griffith University is a public educational institution located in South East Queensland on the east coast of Australia. Founded in 1971 before opening its doors to students in 1975, it has now expanded with five physical campuses spanning three cities in South East Queensland (Brisbane, Gold Coast, Logan) and a Digital Campus.

Griffith University ranks in the top two percent of universities around the world. Distributed across its campuses are the 50,000 students and 4,000 staff dedicated to these following study areas: Architecture, Construction and Planning; Business and Government; Criminology and Law; Education; Engineering, IT and Aviation; Humanities, Languages and Social Science; Medicine, Dentistry and Health; Music and Performing Arts; Science and Environment; and Visual and Creative Arts. Today, Griffith University has over 200,000 alumni across 130 nationalities.

The university—named after two-time Premier of Queensland, first Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia, and principal author of the Australian Constitution, Sir Samuel Walker Griffith—continues to be a progressive institution which challenges convention and celebrates the remarkable.

Griffith University also notably promotes reconciliation, respect, education and engagement as it has the largest Indigenous-student population of any Queensland university. The institution continues to develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement strategies and partnerships for community empowerment, as well as a curriculum informed by respect for the knowledge systems of the nation’s First Peoples.

Through an articulation agreement with MSM Higher Ed, Griffith University is now part of its global consortium as an MSM Higher Ed Pathways Founding Member. MSM Higher Ed Pathways is designed to prepare students for entry or advanced standing at multiple universities in study destinations for international education.

Students who have started their programs through MSM Higher Ed Pathways delivery centres (Foundation Schools) close to their homes may choose to proceed to complete their degree at Griffith University in Australia.
