Celebrate with us!
It’s hard to beat that feeling of seeing our students cross the graduation stage. Wearing the graduation caps, gowns, and hoods, as they shake hands with our Vice-Chancellor and receive their formal credential. This special moment signifies the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. It is an unapologetically proud moment and one that we look forward to at every Torrens University Graduation.
Your Graduation Ceremony is the moment to celebrate all of your hard work, long hours of study, and obstacles that you have overcome to complete your degree – you deserve it!
Torrens University Australia in conjunction with Think Education holds five Graduation Ceremonies in different cities and times of the year, so our students have the opportunity to join at the location of their convenience.
