"I just cannot even begin to describe the positive impact Torrens has had on me. There is so much support, classes are smaller, the staff and the students are all so welcoming. It's definitely the best choice I have made in my academic life so far.
At Torrens University, our students are never just a number.
We know that the biggest drawback to a traditional University is the lack of individualized learning and the large, auditorium-style classrooms. At Torrens, we operate differently. We believe that each student should feel seen and heard. We think that students learn faster and progress through the material quicker in smaller classes. Not only do our students get more from their education, but our teachers feel better equipped to deal with the needs of a classroom by observing and fine-tuning their style of teaching to ensure that everyone is on the same page.
We also encourage our students to participate in stimulating class discussions to strengthen their learnings. Our mix of international and domestic students allows for a dynamic collision of ideas and backgrounds that enrich the learning experience. This is where close friendships are formed and confidence in new learning takes root.
Our smaller classes have resulted in a warm and welcoming sense of community.
As an international student, being away from my friends has been hard, especially when you go to a country when you don’t know anyone. It has been the hardest being away from my dog! However, I’ve been lucky enough to make some great friendships on campus as the small class sizes make it easy to meet new people.
I found studying at a large university quite impersonal and prefer a smaller university where I can interact with lecturers. I was excited about the prospect of being involved at ground level with a new growing university with international connections and standards. At Torrens, the lecturers and the tutors are really friendly and down to earth. They understand your needs and really listen to what you have to say.
To win a scholarship from APM at Torrens University was a dream come true! APM is the perfect college for me because of the intimate class sizes and knowledgeable lecturers. I know the skills, teamed with the industry experience that I will get from APM will help me to succeed.
I chose APM because of the small class sizes and the individual attention that it offered. I didn’t want to feel like 'just another student'. I wanted to know my lecturers and for them to know me.
