Our first-ever Graduation Without Borders is happening on Friday 6th November from 7.30 pm AEDT!!
The good news is - you're invited as one of our guests of honour.
So what is Graduation Without Borders, you ask?
Graduation Without Borders is 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 want to showcase how we are all connected and still part of an amazing worldwide community.
Graduation Without Borders is an opportunity for you to celebrate your achievement with your classmates, friends and family, no matter where in the world they are.
It's all happening, live and free on Friday the 6th of November at 7.30 pm AEDT - you don't want to miss it!
We want to assure you that when the time is right, you will still have the opportunity to walk across the stage and collect your degree.
We know that the moment and indeed the tradition of walking across the stage in graduation regalia remains special for many of you. So we will still offer you the opportunity to join an in-person ceremony next year. We will provide you with more information once we have finalised our plans – so keep an eye out for more details.
