Part of the Laureate International Universities group - a worldwide network of higher education institutions spread across 23 different countries - Torrens University is committed to providing the best possible education to its students. Holding partnerships with companies worldwide, it focuses on creating industry-leading graduates.
Torrens puts a huge emphasis on getting students ready for a career by the end of their course. The undergraduate degrees take two years to complete, while postgraduate courses last 12 months, meaning students are out in the world of work as quickly as possible.
The University runs ‘Touch Point’ networking sessions, providing students with the opportunity to interact with industry professionals and build relationships, giving them the best possible chance of getting at a job after graduation. Students are also provided with a ‘Success Coach’ who looks to increase their employability and provides support for any issues, from workload to finding their way around Australia.
The University has taken time to create stimulating learning spaces that encourage collaboration with surrounding students and staff. With 12 campuses across Australia and New Zealand, Torrens offers a wide range of study options. There is a heavy focus on hands-on learning at Torrens, and the small class sizes give students ample opportunity to have close interactions with their leading, industry-experienced tutors and lecturers. Students can also study online, meaning they can get coursework done at times that suit them.
The Torrens University Language Centre also provides international students with a direct entry programme (DEP). This gives students an opportunity to develop their English, so they can have a smooth transition into their full-time degree programme.
