What our students say

The course was two evenings a week which I found made it easy to maintain a good work-life balance. It gave me the flexibility I needed to maintain my social life.

Emma Carey
LL.B. (Hons) Part-time

Having a young family and returning to education, I was delighted with the supportive environment, positive attitude and encouragement from the faculty. The small class sizes are such a benefit to the learning experience. The course created new opportunities for my future career in law and expanded my viewpoint in so many areas. I’m glad I chose Griffith College & I'm grateful to have made some great friends along the way.
