Torrens University Australia is Australia’s fastest growing university,

providing graduates with globally oriented skills that are highly sought after by employers. It is part of Laureate International Universities, a global network with more than 1,000,000 students at nearly 60 institutions in more than 20 countries worldwide. Torrens University was founded on the belief that when students succeed, countries prosper and society benefits.


Torrens offers a range of career-focused undergraduate and postgraduate programs in Business, Education, Hospitality, Design, Health, Project Management and Sports Management for study on-campus, online or a hybrid of both.


Torrens campuses can be found in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane, and are led by a team of research and career-oriented academic staff who work with our global industry partners to help students bridge the gap between study and work. Torrens students get direct and personalised access to industry-experienced lecturers and learning facilitators through small class sizes and valuable one-to-one interactions, regardless of whether they study online or on-campus.


The university’s dynamic online learning mode also means you can achieve success on your own time. On-demand access to course materials and content is provided so students can study when it is convenient for them. At specific campuses, hybrid courses are also offered that combine elements of online and face to face learning, so students have the option to select a study mode that best suits their needs.


Torrens University places special emphasis on industry placements for all of its academic programs. Apart from industry collaborations, success coaches play a major role in preparing these students for placements by conducting workshops. Students at Torrens also undertake industry placements with some of the most prestigious organisations in Australia and around the world.
