Study Abroad Certificate Program

Get more from your study abroad experience

Study three subjects within a specialisation of your choice, plus one elective, and gain recognition and experience in your chosen study area. We will reward you with a certificate which recognises your commitment to specialist academic areas and enhances your employability. The usual full-time study load is four courses per semester, so you can take an elective from any other specialisation.

Am I eligible?

The study abroad certificate will showcase your expertise in a particular academic area, in which you must have previously demonstrated knowledge. It is essential you have completed at least one year of university level studies, as several subjects have prerequisites.

Entry requirements

As a general guide, La Trobe University requires a C average (GPA 2.5) for entry into the Study Abroad and Exchange program. Entry to individual subjects may depend on prerequisites and class limitations. For ITESM students, we accept institutional TOEFL of 580.

See our English language entry requirements in more detail.


The tables below only list the subjects for each specialisation. You can check the subject description and availability in the Subject database.

Note: not all subjects are offered every semester or at every campus. Please check each subject offering carefully in the Subject database and ensure you meet any listed prerequisites.
