Choose La Trobe

By choosing La Trobe, you're choosing to get real-world experience, gain a global perspective and study alongside people who are pushing the boundaries of knowledge.

Learn for your future

We prepare you to have a positive impact on communities, businesses and organisations by making global citizenship, entrepreneurship and sustainability central to all our undergraduate courses through a curriculum program we call The Essentials.

Work for your future

You'll have opportunities for work experience with organisations such as the Australian Synchrotron, CSIRO, Deloitte and our partner hospital network. You'll also get hands-on experience through on-campus facilities like our TV studio, archaeological dig simulation site and Moot Court, or on field trips to places like Victoria's alpine wilderness.

Be a global citizen

To solve global problems, you'll need a global perspective, so we encourage you to take part in our overseas programs. You could study law in Shanghai, nanotechnology in Tokyo, archaeology in Mexico or urban planning in Sri Lanka. In 2013, we gave travel grants and scholarships to over 800 La Trobe students to study with partners like Michigan State University and the University of Essex.
