alumni colleagues discussion

Our alumni community is a global network of people, ranging from professionals, industry stars, influential leaders, and CEOs, to young rising stars and celebrities. Our alumni are global, world-class, talented, and grace media headlines. They are inspiring and they are changing communities and the world with their innovation, insight, and ambitions. We are incredibly proud of what they achieve.

A part of our community

Our alumni are an important part of our community. When a student studies with us, they become part of our community for life, even after they graduate. So we want to stay connected. We want to share our news, news from our alumni, our recent innovations, plans for the future, and of course networking opportunities, because we know great relationships with our alumni can bring many mutual benefits.

Why do our alumni matter to us?

Alumni are people whose lives we have touched during their journey as a student. As they have first-hand experience of the Torrens University student journey, they can also touch the lives of our current and prospective students.  Alumni are incredibly important because for us, our key differentiating feature is the ethical and community emphasis we place within the curriculum. 

In the spirit of connection with our alumni, many of them become our industry partners, contributing back to the university in terms of generating placement opportunities, delivering guest speeches, answering questions to prospective students at open days, or serving on advisory boards. Therefore, by staying connected with us after graduating, alumni are capable of not only changing our community but the world they operate in. They contribute to the legacy of Torrens University, ensuring that our impact is felt throughout the communities our graduates contribute to.  

Mostly importantly, the stories and journeys of our alumni are an inspiration for many young people and students who may want to start in industry and they are a great showcase of how far their career can go.
