" Being able to be taught by people who actually worked in the industry and made television shows and films really helped get an insight into what I wanted to do and the amount of classes they teach really makes it feel like everyone who wants to do something in the film industry has a place to go. The only problem with having film teachers is that assignments can be really subjective, for example scriptwriting, and they might mark you down because they aren't interested in the type of film you want to make. Otherwise, they really are helpful with creating compelling stories and even have classes that can help you get an introduction to the industry. "

" Love the film school, the whole community is fantastic and very supportive of each other, there are no sports facilities and no parking unless you want to pay an arm and a leg but I love this uni. The Film course is Quite Educational and fun, you get to really be hands-on with all the equipment. From day one, you are already picking up and learning all the equipment and roles in the industry.

" Great university for students in pharmacy and pharmacology or the medical sciences. Campus has sports and shower facilities, food options are not bad and library has plenty of space along with a quiet area (2nd floor) and more social area (first floor). "

" Great university with alot of freedom and support. University has plenty of negatives, but then what place of education doesn’t? There is some academia corruption, however most of it goes unnoticed by undergraduate students so you wouldn’t even know it happens. Some lecturers are simply difficult to work with / study under, in terms of marking fairness / overly-rigorous courses. Some courses (some people call the degree a course, which is inappropriate vocabulary because it leads to confusion) are utterly useless and some are written to a standard below that which you would expect. The university also likes to pretend that the students all know each other and everyone is friends, when the reality is if you don’t have / make (requires effort) any friends, you will only be attending classes / studying alone, period. The majority of students walk this path, and its fine. Now lets talk about why I give it a 5 star, but first let me enforce your trust in my words by saying I completed a hard degree (yes, relatively easy degrees do exist) at Griffith University. 1. The facilities may not seem like it at first, but they are world-class. The only better ones you may find would be in the top 0.1% universities, and considering Griffith is top 2%, that is a really positive statement. And that is why I said ‘may not seem like it at first’, because if you expect shiny laboratories / computer laboratories everywhere with top-of-the-range hardware for undergraduate use, you are dreaming. Compared to QUT, Griffith has visibly better facilities for undergraduate purposes. "

" Griffith Gold Coast has great campus facilities and social activities. Staff are good quality and everything seems to run really smoothly. Some programs aren't as flexible as others if you are someone who works full-time. Studying Psychology and working full-time, I find it hard to attend compulsory in person classes when there are no class times outside of the 9-5 business hours. More online opportunities would be beneficial for people in a similar situation as me. "
