We hope you had an amazing Christmas and a festive New Year. Did you set any big New Year resolutions?
If “figure out what to do with my life” was one of your resolutions then you’re in luck. We’re hosting an exciting and informative Open Day on Saturday, January 20th. You’ll get a chance to speak to our friendly course and career advisors who can help you come up with some ideas. You’ll also get to explore the campus, meet our students and get involved in some free workshops.
Torrens is the place to be if you’re not into the typical University scene (you know, the enormous ones where you are just a number, lost in a sea of people). Torrens prides itself on its small class sizes and our awesome community vibe. We believe in a more hands-on approach, we think you learn best when you actually do the work in real industry placements. Also, when you become a student with us, you will get one on one access to a Success Coach. Your Success Coach is kind of like a friend who is there to support you find out where your strengths are and how to build on that. I mean, why not capitalize on what we’re good at, right?
We can continue to talk about how great we are and why we know you’ll love it here, or… you could just come to Open Day and see for yourself. Here are the top 12 reasons on why you should stop by.
