I learned a lot about myself and how I deal with stress. I learned to appreciate time alone and learned that I love to travel alone! Definitly worthwhile. - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I learned to be more independent and likely to try new things. I think I'm a more confident person now. - Clemson University View Entire Review
It was amazing. I learned so much. I've matured. It was the best four months of my life, and I wouldn't change a thing. I will remember my time abroad for the rest of my life!! - Youngstown State University View Entire Review
Absolutely. The best decision I have ever made. If I knew how much I was going to love it, I would have stayed a year. The people you meet will be life long friends.

About

The Gold Coast and Brisbane program is ideal if you want to live and study near some of Australia's most beautiful beaches and rain forest and are looking for a wide range of courses in diverse disciplines. The program is located along the east coast of Australia which places you in the perfect location to head north, south, or west to explore the best of what Australia has to offer. At Griffith University you will find innovative and popular classes-from Multimedia Telecommunications to Internet Computing, Biomolecular Science to Visual Media, International Relations to Banking and Finance.
As you may already realize, Australian semesters differ from those in the US. You may participate in one or two semesters; Semester 1 runs from February to June and Semester 2 runs from July to November. You are welcome to study at any of Griffith University’s campuses. There is a campus on the Gold Coast and several in the Brisbane area: Southbank, Nathan, and Mt. Gravatt. Each campus is unique and offers a wide range of course options, provides study abroad students with academic and personal support, and gives students the opportunity to participate in various clubs and activities.
