Our first-ever Graduation Without Borders was on Friday 6th November 2020.


So what is Graduation Without Borders, you ask?


Graduation Without Borders was an online celebration of the success of our class of 2020! While the rest of the world is in lockdown and closing borders, at Torrens University Australia and Think Education, we wanted to showcase how we are all connected and still part of an amazing worldwide community.


Graduation Without Borders was an opportunity for our 2020 graduates to celebrate your achievement with their classmates, friends and family, no matter where in the world they are.

On Friday 6 November 2020 we celebrated their pivotal milestone, acknowledged their hard work and the people who have helped along the way - their teachers, our staff, your family, friends and fellow students. If you missed it...
