My friends and the teachers I've met at GELI were the main reason I wanted to study English. They always encourage me to speak English without being shy. I wasn't confident because I thought my English wasn't good, but no matter whether my English was good or not, I always tried to make a conversation with friends and teachers.
I chose to study at Griffith University due to their flexible programs and highly educated and innovative faculty members. The highlight of my Griffith experience would be all the amazing people that I have met thus far; from the locals to international people from all over the world.
I first heard about an opportunity at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games through the School of Medicine. It has definitely been a unique experience. I worked mostly in the Athlete's Village Polyclinic at the front desk with awesome hospital and clinic receptionists. I shadowed emergency doctors, sports physicians and general practitioners and spent time learning how to read x-rays and CT scans from radiologists. It was the people I met during these weeks that made my experience particularly special!
Griffith Mates has not been only been a great opportunity to develop and utilise numerous transferable skills; but also a way to build global networks through being able to meet some of the friendliest students with diverse backgrounds and cultures.
I am currently a Griffith Mate and Welfare Student Leader, which have both allowed me to build on my leadership skillset as well as show how important teamwork is in a social setting. It has also allowed me to meet new people and build friendships and networks I didn't have before joining them.
Even when I had difficult moments during my first months, the staff were there to listen and support me and this experience has left unforgettable memories in my life. I can only say thank you so much for your patience, and thanks to all of you for your attention.
I chose Griffith because I always had multiple interests and I wanted to study a double degree program. Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Business allowed me to pursue my passion for history while gaining a critical understanding of the corporate world.
Griffith Mates and EnglishHELP are extremely useful for me to learn basic English skills. I enjoy the nature here in Queensland, and living with Aussies is the best way to learn about the Australian culture.
I chose to study here after talking to teachers from multiple schools in Brisbane. Every single teacher told me that the best, most employable teachers come from Griffith University. So I took the plunge and applied. After acceptance, I found out that the previous cohort of teachers had a 100% employment rate upon graduation. That is unheard of. I also talked to some friends who had studied at GU and they had nothing but positive comments to say.
