The irreplaceable experience you get from an

exchange program is priceless! Exchange options at

Griffith mean as part of your program you can broaden

your study experience with other high profile

international partner institutions. As a masters

student, I decided to go on exchange with National

Taiwan University (NTU) (ranked in the World’s top

100 universities Times QS World Ranking). I found

NTU courses demanding but, achievable, following a

similar assessment structure to Griffith in regards to

reading, assignments and exams. The NTU Chinese

classes were some of the best I have ever taken. I

would not trade my experience in Taiwan for anything.

It gave me great opportunity for study and life

experience.

GI MATES are fellow students and mentors that understand new student problems and are

there to help. New students can consider GI MATES as friends. I can’t think of any better way

to bridge the warm welcome that a university offers to new students. I have experienced how

it feels to be a confused new international student. As a mentor and current ‘Griffith citizen’ it

is a great opportunity being able to play a part and make a difference in someone else’s new

life at Uni.

Shalini Kamath

Successful graduates

By developing degrees in close consultation with industry,

Griffith ensures environment students graduate with the

skills employers demand. That’s why more than 5000 Griffith

graduates are working in Australia today as environmental

professionals. This includes most senior environmental positions

in government and private enterprise.

Teach the world

Griffith’s environmental educators are highly sought-after,

nationally and internationally, as trainers and problem-solvers

for government and industry. Griffith staff members provide

their expertise to international agencies, such as the:

• United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural

Organization (UNESCO)

• United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)

• United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

• World Health Organization (WHO).

Environmental multimedia

When UNESCO needed to develop a multimedia teaching

package to help educators around the world teach sustainable

environmental practices, it chose Griffith as its partner. The

interactive teaching package was launched at the Earth Summit

in Johannesburg in 2002, and has since been customised

for Nepal, China, Japan, Thailand, India and Pakistan and the

developing nations of southern Africa.

Program objectives: --------This program introduces the physical science basis for climate change and its ecological and human health

impacts. It examines the different economic instruments and legal tools available or proposed, both

nationally and internationally, to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and analyses the various emissions

trading regimes. Legal and policy decisions in different sectors, such as renewable energy and transport,

are examined. Society’s vulnerability to climate change impacts and possible adaptive strategies, with

various foci, such as human health, biodiversity, natural disaster management (e.g. bushfires/droughts)

and urban systems, are explored. There is the opportunity to gain practical experience by exploring a

theme in climate change via an applied project, possibly in conjunction with an industry partner or one of

Griffith’s research centres.

Career outcomes: -----------These programs provide the skills and knowledge necessary to work in multidisciplinary teams, to

contribute to policymaking processes, and to run environmental management systems. Further, the

masters programs provide a stepping stone to more senior management positions. Graduates will be well

placed to gain employment in the public sector, business or community organisations.

may be available to:

• international students who have another type of visa that does not preclude them from completing

the compulsory intensive course in Australia.

English requirements: -------IELTS result 7.0 (with no sub-score below 6.5). For more information please refer to page 113 OR

successful completion of Griffith University Direct English Entry Pathway see page 107.

Program objectives: --------The new Sport and Exercise Medicine programs are targeted towards graduates in medicine,

physiotherapy, exercise science, nutrition, pharmacy, nursing, or podiatry, or those with comparable

qualifications in the health care professions. While sport and exercise medicine has traditionally been the

domain of medical practitioners, it is important for all involved in the welfare of sports people to have an

understanding of the prevention and management of injury, and appropriate routes of referral to improve

the outcome of injury. The program will provide advanced clinical training for medical and allied health

specialisations, while at the same time, recognising the evolving, multidisciplinary nature of injury

prevention and health in sport and exercise.

Career outcomes: ----------Within the burgeoning sport and exercise medicine area, there is an increasing need for graduates with

advanced clinical skills and increased knowledge in the scientific bases that underpin performance and

injury and, as such, there is a niche market for graduates with these skills. The proposed program will draw

on the multidisciplinary strengths of the Schools of Physiotherapy and Exercise Science, Medicine, and

Medical Science within the Griffith Health Group. Graduates of the program will better manage a range of

sport-related conditions through improving the links between general practitioners, other specialists,

allied health professionals, and the broader, non-clinical health and exercise professions.

Program objectives: --------The Master of Sports Coaching has been designed to give practising and aspiring coaches the opportunity

to enhance their development in the area of high performance coaching. The challenge of producing

excellence in sport is now well recognised as requiring highly skilled and academically qualified coaches

who can successfully blend science and practice. Additionally, coaches require skills in leadership and

management to coordinate a large and complex group of people who contribute to the development of

athletes and teams. Hence, the program involves a multidisciplinary partnership between the School of

Physiotherapy and Exercise Science (PES), the School of Education and Professional Studies (EPS) and

whilst EPS and GBS will offer courses focusing on the development of relevant leadership and

management skills respectively.

Career outcomes: -----------Students will acquire skills and knowledge to enhance employment opportunities as a high performance

coach in their chosen sport, both nationally and internationally. Other graduates may choose to become

coach educators within their governing body. The skills developed in this program are transferable and can

be applied to a wide range of careers. The Graduate Certificate in Sports Coaching is available as an entry

or an exit point to the masters. The Master of Sports Coaching with Honours will provide eligible students

interested in research the opportunity to complete a dissertation that will make a substantial contribution

to the knowledge-base of sports coaching.
