What our students say?

Julie McGrath

I always had great interest in design but didn’t know where to start. After a lot of research, I chose the Interior Architecture course at Griffith. The course covered a huge amount of topics and prepared us well for what to expect in the industry. The faculty also provided great support and encouraged us to submit projects for recognised awards which helped in advancing my career. After completing the 3 years, I secured a full-time job as an interior architect. Looking back I'm really glad I did this course and would highly recommend it.

This course really helped in advancing my career. With the assistance of the faculty, I secured an internship every summer in Dublin, including an internship at IKEA. And when I completed my degree, I secured a full-time job as an interior architect. I’m so glad I did this course and would highly recommend it.
