regions, countries and fields, and have received international recognition for their academic quality.
Torrens’ offers innovative and industry-aligned courses led by industry-experienced academics. Our lecturers are industry professionals who share their significant experience with their students in everything they teach. Hands-on experience is worked into every course at Torrens so that students can graduate confident and already sure of their skills.
Industry placements represent a substantial opportunity for students to further develop what they have learned in the classroom by applying it in a professional workplace. A successful Industry Placement, combined with further work experience, will make Torrens University students highly employable and highly skilled professionals, ready to work in the career of their choice.
Many courses have inbuilt internships and industry placements within the course where students will study a trimester with an industry partner as part of their assessment. Other internships are optional. Internship placements are undertaken in local start-ups, not-for-profit organisations, blue chip organisations and in local Government with students going on to successfully graduate and secure positions in their field.
Through our Careers & Employability Services we provide workshops, events and talks in conjunction with leading employers to help students grow their network, develop key skills and secure industry placements.
The Careers and Employability team is here to support employers find the right student or graduate for their business.
