International activities

La Trobe is dedicated to serving the global community through internationalisation, innovative teaching and learning methods, and research.

This includes encouraging our students and staff to gain international experience, development of an internationalised curriculum and research programs, and the diversification of our student community.

The University's strong international focus is manifested and continually enhanced in several key areas of the University:

Teaching

  • a range of courses and pathways that meet the requirements of the diverse markets in which we operate, and which are delivered onshore in Victoria and Sydney, or offshore with high quality transnational teaching partners
  • high quality academic relationships
  • strong and productive partnerships with pathway providers onshore and offshore

Research

  • strong international research partnerships and internationally focused research

Community engagement

  • opportunities and support for international students to engage successfully in their University life and in their communities
  • exceptionally strong engagement with employers, industry and with alumni

Student mobility
