We want passionate humans, not perfect performance

Because we know passion unlocks potential, not an ATAR score.

We have always believed that ATAR is not a true representation of a student's future success. So we have removed it as an entry requirement, for good. We know that the individuality of the student, their strengths, and future potential is a better indication of how they might succeed in higher education.

Worried about your low ATAR? Don’t be.

We no longer require ATAR as an entry requirement. Because we know passion unlocks potential, not an ATAR score. Here are our pathways to entry:

  • Successful completion of Year 12 (Australian secondary school certificate or equivalent) guarantees entry into the Torrens University's Bachelor programs*
  • Our Diploma programs offer a pathway to completion of a Bachelor degree

As an alternative entry pathway, we consider other factors, such as creative portfolios for Design and Creative Technology degrees and student interviews for entry into other courses.

*Exceptions may apply to some courses
