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.
