What our students say

Enrolling in the Accounting & Finance part time degree was a huge decision, but the lecturing staff, and indeed everyone at Griffith College, made the transition easy and enjoyable. Managing a full-time job along with studies was made easier by the consistent level of support. I found the classes to be a fantastic open environment full of discussion as well as structured lectures and great reading material. I would highly recommend anyone considering studying Accounting & Finance to choose Griffith College.
