Studying in Australia is fun, but it also demands a lot of self-motivation. So, there are also some important things you need to know.
The Getting Started orientation sessions for commencing international students at Griffith University are provide by the International Student Advisors and have information about studying here and living in Brisbane. We also throw some current students in to the mix as peer support to answer some of your questions student life.
These sessions assist in helping you and other students from all over the World to settle into your new environment more easily and to begin a little friendly social networking.
