Welcome to QIBT

We are delighted to see you are looking for information about QIBT and its highly respected partner, Griffith University.

QIBT has worked in partnership with Griffith University since 1997, offering a range of university-level programs which prepare our students for a smooth transition into further degree studies at the university.

The location of the College on the Griffith University campus, and the strong partnership between the two institutions, ensures our students are welcomed as part of the university community from the outset. The university-designed programs are often taught by university lecturers and prepare our students for the demands of higher education in Australia.

QIBT specialises in delivering the learning process within a supportive environment, with small class sizes and additional contact hours to those typically offered within a university. This teaching model has resulted in high success rates for our students.

We are proud of the rich cultural mix within our student population, with more than 60 different nationalities represented at the College. Student mentors and caring staff help students settle into QIBT and life in Australia.

In choosing a QIBT program, you will be following thousands of other students who have graduated from the College with their QIBT award and gone on to achieve further success at Griffith University.

I look forward to welcoming you to the College community and encourage you to make QIBT the first step to achieving your goals.
