Who We Are

Working with Media Design School and Torrens University Australia is all about working alongside over 2,000 professionals passionate about career and purpose. Our staff across New Zealand and Australia across our campuses and head office are united by our central ethos to Be Good – by committing to a better way of doing business. 

There is shared purpose which drives the strong collegiality and teamwork across our organisation – supporting the journey and success of our students. 

Importantly, we ensure that our people grow – with ongoing opportunities to be creative, explore, contribute, build skills and attributes, so that the next chapter is richer and more productive than ever. 

Then of course there is the freshness and exhilaration of being part of New Zealand's most awarded tertiary institution for creative and digital technology.
