About this program

The program introduces students to the scientific research culture early in their degree program, challenging their abilities to produce high quality advanced work. Students have the additional opportunity to engage in research science early in their degree by undertaking one Advanced Studies course per trimester and a significant project in their final trimester. In doing so, the students will be individually guided and mentored by one or more of the outstanding scientific researchers within Griffith's schools and research centres.

Student Income Support

To be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.

Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.

Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.

Please refer to the Australian Government website for more details.
