At Torrens University Australia, we know everyone’s different. Our job is to help you discover a course you’re passionate about so you can get a start on your dream career.

Passion unlocks potential

At Torrens University Australia, we believe there’s more to our students than just a number. While the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) is a reasonable indication of your performance, this number doesn’t necessarily recognise your hard work or the areas where you really shine. We believe your individuality and potential is a better sign of how you might succeed in higher education.

As a result, Torrens University removed ATAR as the key admissions criteria for students aiming to study with us. Instead, future students with recent secondary school education are considered for admission if they have a Year 12 certificate*.

*Exceptions may apply to some courses.

Frequently asked questions

  • What are Torrens University Australia’s courses’ ATAR requirements?
    Torrens University Australia no longer considers ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) as our primary entry requirement. We have removed ATAR as the key admissions criteria for applicants aiming to study at Torrens University Australia. We strongly believed an alternative to the ATAR system should be found, which more broadly assesses students, especially when soft skills are emerging as important employability attributes. So, students with a recent secondary school education are now considered for admission if they have a Year 12 (Australian secondary school) certificate.
