The traditional role of a University is to acquire, enhance and preserve knowledge and, in turn, to impart that knowledge on those willing to learn. The health courses offered by Torrens University are a reflection of that role but are executed with a sense of ‘purpose’. It is that ‘purpose’ that makes careers in this space so rewarding for both students and our graduates. There can be nothing more purposeful in life than to offer an individual a healthier life.
