The enrolment process for the Diploma of Nursing course is manual and actioned by Torrens University on behalf of students. To be eligible for manual enrolment, continuing students must provide their written consent.
How does it work?

To be enrolled in your next subjects, you are required to respond to the re-enrolment survey*. The survey link is sent 4 weeks prior to the start of the trimester, to both your student and personal emails. Please also check your spam folder.
*Once enrolled, you will receive a confirmation of enrolment including your timetable. This email will only be sent to your student email.
*You will also receive your invoice via your student email within 24 hours after being enrolled.

We are currently experiencing some delays with enrolments.

In the meantime, you can view your timetable according to your progression and start organising yourself for the upcoming trimester starting on 30 May 2022.

When you are in the 'Register for Classes' view, each class option shows where the class will be held. This will show options for all campuses, including those from other states.
