Are you guys going to try and get credits for previous studies? I can probably get a few of the intro chem/bio/anatomy courses credited but it's been a while since I did them. Do you guys see any benefit in re-doing them (although when I did them, I remember hating it all)?

I believe classes start on the 26th (someone correct me if I’m wrong). As for the timetable, mine looks pretty messy and hectic.
Haven’t finished mine but it will be messy. I have friends in dent and they have to miss lectures to go to labs/tuts and then watch the lectures online. I can already tell that’ll be the case for most.

Classes start on the 26th

The week before is orientation. The campus will be buzzing

Might be good to get there and have a look around (especially the health sciences building) if you’ve never set foot on the campus.

Don’t think they’ll accept any credits unless it’s the exact same course. They’re funny with that kinda stuff because they’ll just tell you that it’s a prerequisite in order to do the next subjects and you should just do it anyway

Just give them a call :)

Another Australian institution

This website shows the equivalent courses, quite a few of mine are pre-approved already. Have a look, you guys might get lucky too.

GPA 7
got an offer yesterday
is there any facebook page or a group for Dent 2018 intake?
Congrats Natalie, I was wondering if you ended up getting in last year as I had the same GPA as you last year! The facebook group is here: http://www.facebook.com/groups/403061760129394

It's an official Griffith group though so I think you have to have enrolled and have a proper Griffith email before they accept you into the group.

Does anyone know what the parking situation is like on campus? Is a parking permit worth purchasing?

Sweet
I’m sure that’ll be handy for people who have done science courses :)

You’re the best judge as to how confident you feel with what you’ve done I guess



Parking is good if you’re going early mornings or late arvo... otherwise it fills up pretty quickly. You could obviously sit and wait for people to leave... just be a bit earlier and not 5 mins before class starts.


Other options:
- park in the suburbs and walk 5-10 mins (many of these streets are now 2/3 hour parking)
- parks a few tram/bus stops away in suburbs and tram/bus
- bike/walk

General permit: need to get to uni by around 7.30 or you won’t get a park. Good if you have lots of 8am starts. Multi story parking: guaranteed park at any time of day, but pricier and further away from where your classes are.

Hello! Was it only non standard offers that were released through UAC? Bc I haven't heard any school leavers who have recieved an offer.

I have recieved 99.55, do I have a decent shot at an offer tomorrow?

I am just curious if you've got an offer for Griffith Dent via QTAC? As you noticed there are not many school leavers compared to non-standards. QTAC stats showed only 2 QLD school leavers last year. Maybe there were some interstate school leavers, but my speculation is the number should be similar to QLD's.

I know de wae
myGriffith is not lagging for me brudda
"cluck"
I will show you de wae at Griffith
I got it sorted fam, but lmao *cluck*.
I think it was just my internet actually, but what I ended up doing was trying to access myGriffith in different ways (e.g. via the email they sent me, directly etc. etc.)
One of the methods worked but I don't know which one. Again, it could've been my internet.

Er... I can't seem to join the Facebook group? It just leads me to a general Griffith page?

Did you verify your Griffith email address first? I couldn't see it until my email was verified.

Anyone else notice that a few of the class options have already filled up (I thought sign-on's normally happen a few weeks post-offers!)? My timetable looks okay although isn't the best!

Shouldn't be too hard to improve your timetable if you need to; there are colossal amounts of students enrolling in foundation year health courses, many of which will unenrol or change their timetable between now and ~week 3 of the trimester. Keep logging on and checking regularly and spots in different labs will open up. Also, each of the lecture series is repeated 2-3 times a week for ANP/CTR/Chem so you can attend whichever one suits your timetable best, and you can pretty much turn up to any Chem tutorial you want regardless of what is on your timetable.

Agreed with Crow

Also notice that many classes run every second week.. and some lectures only week 1, 2 and 12 for example

Best thing is print out your enrolled timetable and actually make notes of the actual (already full) classes that suit you. Show up and just see if there’s spots. The tutors are pretty chill with it as long as there’s seats available and it’s not an orgy in there!

Good luck
