    for the most part you only go to one campus .. i only know a couple of people who are enrolled in classes at more than one. so it's not like you have to go between the gold coast/nathan/mt gravatt campuses or whatever.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    it's likely that i'll be going to griffith in 2007 to study multimedia. i put down graphic design as my first preference at the queensland college of art but no doubt i won't make it in so multimedia is the next option for me. Is anyone else doing this course, if so what is it like? hopefully i'll enjoy it as much as i did in high school.

    Just on this topic, I'm guessing UQ also has the same course. If it does, can I ask if you've got other reasons on top of those for wanting to go to Griffith? I'm an interstate applicant, so for me its a decision between the 'older and more prestigious UQ' or the 'new and awesome' Griffith which from what I have found has campuses all over the place...

    So if anyone also knows, whats it like going to a uni which is spread out compared to an all in one uni? for example in terms of uni facilities/social clubs etc

    ps, Is the a difference in the cost of living from Gold Coast and Brisbane? I'm guessing the GoldCoast is more expensive because tourists inflate the economy.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    i liked the Mt Gravatt campus, and the bus system is brisbane kicks the shit out of sydney so its easy to get to.

    you only go to one campus .. well, the med students have a couple classes at the medical campus at the hospital, but apart from that they pretty much stick to one. like, i'm enrolled at the gold coast and i've never even been to mt gravatt/south bank/logan whatever, like, it's of absolutely no concern to me and all the social outings/clubs/facilities and stuff are totally separate for each campus.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    katietheskatie - Can I ask what course you're doing? and which campus?

    Also, would you say the campus itself has enough clubs/facilities/societies etc...basically has it got the things that a bigger all in one uni would have>?

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    um, i'm doing a bachelor of business in hotel management/bachelor of international business.

    yeah, i'd say there's enough .. there's a club for pretty much every sporting or cultural thing you could think of, there's decent facilities etc. there's probably not as many restaurants/shops/whatever as something like unsw, but depending on the campus it's pretty good. except for logan campus which is like three buildings from what i've heard lol.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    well basically what I'm trying to get at is deciding between UQ and Griffith (GC Campus), purely in terms of their locations/facilities first. I'm an interstate student, so accomodation for me is also a big factor. I'll be heading over there sometime after the HSC to check it out, but I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons from the internet first. Otherwise thanks for you're replies, they've been very useful. Do you know of any other things I might find useful?

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    Imo Brisbane is much nicer than GC, especially if your campus is the one in the botanical gardens (I'm not sure which is which). Also there's absolutely heaps of student accommodation around Brisbane city (and very reasonably priced too) - check out the accommodation link from the Griffith website. Hope this helps.

    I'm moving up there next year too (from NSW), but most likely will be living up in the mountains.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    the gu campus is at south bank which is right accross the river from the cbd. you shouldn't have any trouble finding accomodation at their cmapuses, there is plenty. choosing the right campus really depends on the course ur doing as transport etc is cheap and easy.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    Awesome thanks for the info. But maybe I should stop choosing on location and go by which Uni offers the better course. In the end that will probably be the decisive factor. But of course the location will be the icing on the cake. But right now, I'm more inclined to UQ, even though you guys put some great points foward about Griffith.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    I'll be going to Griffith next year, hopefully I'll get into on campus at nathan, since the campus is really nice with all the trees and everything, since I live in the middle of a national park at the moment I don't think I could stand being surrounded by nothing by concrete.

    Also I want to do a bachelor of science with advanced studies and none of the other brisbane uni's have it.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    Hey guys im a prospective GU Gold Coast student:P
    Looks like so much fun there (as well as an excellent uni of course lol), only problem i have now is where to live as im from NSW! Ive looked at the student built accomm. and i think its either going to be a toss up between Nexus Place or Uni Village. If anyone could tell me a little more about both of those places (or even the other two - Metro on Central or Uni Square) that would be FANTASTIC!!

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    metro and nexus place aren't near uni, so they have a shuttle bus thingo which i guess could be a pain in the ass .. uni square and uni village are within walking distance, but uni square doesn't have a pool. i think it's marginally less expensive or something though.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    I did the drive-through visit of the GC campus, and from what I saw (mainly the outside of buildings/facilities) its a very nice place. I think its one of the larger campuses of the Griffith University, but facilities wise it doesn't have a lot going for it in the actual campus. However I saw a very large Sports Centre opposite the road from the campus, so I guess thats where the action can take place.

    The new student accomodation being built for the GC campus is across the road (but the road is a major highway), but they'll have walkways joining the campus and accomodation. Right now they are still clearing the land and haven't laid foundations for it, but hopefully as they say, they will complete the first 200 beds by February 2007.

    I'm from Sydney too, so if I can compare it to the ones here, I have to say what I saw looks very nice, mainly because a lot of the stuff is fairly new and they are still building more.

    Otherwise I would have thought the main attraction of the GC campus is that its in GC, and therefore close to the beach, good weather and all round great place to be.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    lol i haventy been here for a while, but im now finishing third year at GU - Nathan, still doing the B. Science, majoring in Chemistry, overall the uni is fairly good, but the timetabling sucks major donkey balls...

    But over all, ive seen two Campus' Mount Gravatt Campus, which is for the Teaching and Psychology students mainly, but there is some arts, and other subjects there, and Nathan, which is about 4-5 times bigger, and has everything bar music, psych, teaching, as it's the major campus up at brisbane.

    It's fun and it's worthwhile going there.

    Re: Griffith University - calling all students

    Hello. I am new here.

    I plan to do a Bachelor of Arts / Business next year at Griffith GC. I will apply for the double degree once I am accepted into the Arts degree because of the OP 6 required.

    I will, hopefully, work in public service after I am finished at university.

    Anyone else staying at Griffith University Village? On the GC. Because I am :-).
