Torrens University Australia is covering up to 15% off on total tuition costs for successful students in the African & Subcontinent Health Merit Scholarship. The main motive of the bursary is to provide financial support for students who want to undertake a degree program in Health Science.
An application from Laureate Education Asia to found a private university was approved by the Government of South Australia in October 2011. Upon commission, Torrens University became the 33rd university in Australia and the first new university for 20 years.
The go-ahead for the new university was given by the South Australian Cabinet following Premier Mike Rann’s negotiations in Australia and in Cancun, Mexico, with Laureate Chairman Douglas Becker and Chancellor Michael Mann. Honorary Laureate Chancellor and former US President Bill Clinton publicly endorsed the Australian project.
The founding President and Vice-Chancellorwas Fred McDougall, former deputy vice-chancellor and vice-president of the University of Adelaide.
Torrens University Australia was accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency in 2012. It was originally expected to open in 2013 but commenced teaching in 2014.
In 2020 Strategic Education Inc. became the new owner of Torrens University Australia. This new alliance created a global network of over 100,000 learners around the world.
