‘I’m now living in Sydney and training for
the 2020 Olympics as well as gaining
experience through an internship with the

Sports College gave me the freedom to be
able to train while also completing my studies.
I was able to base my timetable around my
training schedule as well as compete on
the highest stage. I had support so I could
get all my assessment in on time. I wouldn’t

     jumped at the chance to move to the Gold

     Joshua’s goal is to be accepted into a Doctor

     For his practicum, he worked in a cardiac

     A passion to work in the sports industry
     led Campbell Hall all the way to the Gold
     Coast from Tasmania. The Bachelor of
     Business graduate (majors in Sport and Event
     Management) kicked an early career goal by
     landing a role at the Gold Coast SUNS straight
     out of university. ‘Working at an AFL club so
     early in my career has been tremendous,’
     Campbell says. ‘It’s been in no small part due
     to my time at Griffith where I was able to
     build a sporting industry network through a
     vast range of opportunities and experiences.’
     Starting as a Membership Administrator for
     the SUNS, Campbell worked his way up to
     the Business Development Office gaining
     invaluable experience in the running of an
     elite sporting franchise.

As an elite swimmer, Zac Stubblety-Cook
subscribes to the motto that he is a person
first, athlete second. In Zac’s case, studying
a Bachelor of Psychology and Bachelor of
Business at Griffith offers him the balance he
requires. Long hours in the pool and regular
travel for training and competition complicate
Zac’s university experience, but the 19-year-
old receives extra support and advice so that
he can achieve his goals. ‘Griffith has really
helped me fit my study in with my swimming
commitments,’ Zac says. He recently set an
Australian textile suit record for the 200 m
breaststroke to win a Pan Pacific Games silver
medal. His ultimate goal is to win Olympic
gold…and to finish his swimming career
with a university-level qualification.

Luke Licht began his working life with his
dream job, and six years on he still pinches
himself that he’s part of one of Australia’s
best-known sporting teams. Having
completed a Master of Physiotherapy
at Griffith after completing his Bachelor
of Exercise Science degree (Honours), Luke
is now an integral part of the Brisbane Lions’
High Performance Team. Luke joined the
Lions after spending time at the AFL club
as an intern in the High Performance Unit.
‘The professional placement I received during
my studies at Griffith was invaluable, and
I’m now one of two physiotherapists who
look after the senior team squad,’ Luke says.
‘I always wanted to be a physio. When I came
to Griffith, I thought it was pretty unlikely
I’d get anywhere near an AFL club, but it’s
worked out wonderfully and career-wise
I couldn’t be happier.’
