Yes, STYLE code :

Note that 103 gives you slashes whereas 105 gives you hyphens

And most flexible is the format function :

Heres an example
declare @coldate date = getdate()

select format(@coldate,'dd-MM-yyyy')

select format(@coldate,'d','en-gb')

select convert(char(10), @coldate, 105)

select convert(char(10), @coldate, 103)
