So you know all about the Griffith Portal and enrolment, and you can navigate [email protected] like a pro, but the Griffith University site has a multitude of other uses that you may not have even considered. I’d like to use this post to showcase some of the great functions of the Griffith site that you may not have heard about.
1. Plan a trip abroad
As part of Griffith International, the Study Abroad and Exchange page provides you with information about overseas trips that you can take as part of your degree. Interested in spending a semester studying in another country, looking to get some international work experience, or maybe gain credits for your degree on one of Griffith’s International study tours? Then this is the page for you!
2. Discover your dream career
Love your degree but aren’t exactly sure where it could take you? Why not visit the Careers and Employment Service?
3. Find the perfect job
Looking for a little part time work while you’re studying? Or perhaps you’re starting to think about graduate positions. Well, head to the Careers and Employment page for students! Packed with great tips and links to amazing resources, this page has everything you need to know to help you get noticed by employers and secure the position. Have a browse and you’ll discover how to structure an amazing cover letter and resume, plus you can even book an appointment with one of the Careers and Employment staff, all for free!
4. Brush up on some general skills
You’re writing an essay and know exactly what you want to say … you just can’t seem to get the words out. Sound familiar? Save yourself the frustration and visit the Library page’s self-help resources. Here you’ll find loads of resources related to general but useful and often overlooked skills to make your university life easier. Among many other skills you can brush up on some essay writing skills, learn how to reference properly and get some pointers for presenting your upcoming speech.
5. Have some fun on campus
The What’s on page gives you access to information about upcoming events on all campuses. This page will give you all the details you need to make the most of the free activities at the Chill Out Days (massage anyone?), nab a bargain on Market Day and celebrate the end of another full on year with the End of Semester Party. With the help of this page you’ll never miss a campus event again!
So Explore readers, go forth and discover the Griffith website! You never know the gems you might find!
