Course Information

Griffith University can offer some courses in the Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Business online for International students outside Australia due to travel restrictions. For students commencing study from outside Australia, online delivery is an interim arrangement. Once travel restrictions are lifted, students will be expected to travel to Australia as soon as they are able, to continue their study on campus, and they will require a student visa for this. If travel restrictions prevent this, students will need to apply for a Leave of Absence.

Arrangements for continuing students unable to travel to Australia will be advised by the School.

This program will be available to commencing students at the Gold Coast and Nathan from 2021.

This double degree prepares students for scientific practice or for business and management roles in technical, regulatory, environmental, health or biomedical oriented businesses, industries or government organisations.

Students choose from a range of science and business majors in accordance with their interests and career plans.
