My Griffith Story: Griffith taught me that productivity creates opportunities.

"I was entrepreneurial from a young age and was regularly looking for ways to make money. In fact, I set up my first business during my time at Griffith, with two friends. We removed the hassle of purchasing and disposing of Christmas trees and provided an online service in 2009; our venture was called ‘Trees on Wheels’!"

4 Reasons to Study Computing Science

"Griffith College has a proud history of developing graduates who’ve gone on to rewarding careers with the tech giants like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn and Microsoft, but our graduates are also working in start-ups, in industry and quite a few have even set up their own businesses. There are countless reasons to study computing, but here are four you should keep in mind."

My Griffith Story: This scholarship will help me fulfil my dream.

"Griffith College works closely with Donore Credit Union, which was the first credit union in Ireland. The scholarship was set up to help a student who is eager to gain a bright future and has a history of excelling in their studies. I’m excited to use this opportunity to help me fulfil my dreams."

My Griffith Story: My course gave me the confidence to pursue fashion design as a career.

"I loved our studio classes as creating sketchbooks and designing is my favourite part of the design process. The small classes mean you get far more attention from tutors than in other colleges. I also really loved the pressure. Although it’s stressful, I felt it drove me to come up with ideas quickly and you have less time to doubt yourself."

Philadelphia Law Internship 2019

"The first week was pretty short in terms of actual court work - it was the week of the Fourth of July, which meant that everyone left the city to travel to the shore for the long weekend. I went with three other interns, Asma, Catarina and Tom, to the Wawa Welcome America July 4th Concert in front of the Art Museum. We spent the evening watching Jennifer Hudson and Meghan Trainor perform as well as enjoying the fireworks!"

My Griffith Story: Griffith prepared me to be a STEAM ambassador.

"I’ve been a student at Griffith College since September 2017, and I have loved it every day since. I have made amazing friends both inside and outside of my college course. Last year I was the Griffith College Table Tennis captain! I also played badminton, which I enjoyed very much. Each year I look forward to attending the annual Griffith Ball, which is always great fun. I am so excited for the remaining years I have here at Griffith College."

Examples and Tips for Design Portfolios

"Your portfolio not only shows your work but shows your personality and your creative style. Before you even start collating everything you need for it, take some time and answer these questions:

  • What inspires me?
  • What are my strengths?
  • How can I show my passion for and knowledge of my chosen Design field?"

My Griffith Story: Each day is different, and they're all fun.

"Griffith has helped me a lot. Since starting this course, I am able to adapt very well and apply that into my workplace. This also allows me to reflect on my work and see if and where there are areas I can improve."
