I heard about Griffith University through my home University in Germany. After doing some research it became clear to me that I really wanted to go to Griffith. The beautiful campus and the city of the Gold Coast, where my campus would be located strengthened my decision.
After my arrival I had some free weeks until University was due to start. I enjoyed the good weather, the beach and nature. Meanwhile it was cold and almost winter in Germany.
When University started, I felt very welcome at Griffith. I attended orientation events for new students, where everything important I needed to know was explained and former study abroad students shared their experience.
