As part of our partnership with the AFL Players’ Association (AFLPA), we are delighted to welcome players Leah Kaslar, Reilly O’Brien and Alex Neal Bullen as our new partnership ambassadors.
This energetic group of individuals bring passion and commitment to their roles as partnership ambassadors. As partnership ambassadors, their primary role will be to represent Torrens University in discussing and promoting the importance of education as an elite athlete and why it’s essential to set oneself up for life after football.
We are proud to have these passionate and talented student-athletes represent us. We look forward to seeing them inspire other athletes to take advantage of the opportunities available to them at Torrens University.

More about the Torrens University and AFLPA Partnership
The partnership between Torrens University and AFLPA started in November 2020. As the preferred education provider for AFLPA, Torrens University offers tertiary education programs to all AFLPA members, players, staff and corporate partners. Since the commencement of the partnership, we have seen growth in the number of AFLPA members enrolling into courses with Torrens University. This is a testament to our flexible and diverse study options and our commitment to supporting athletes to thrive both on the field and in the classroom.
