Returning to study

Is it a while since you left school? 

Are you thinking about going to uni after a break from your last study?

La Trobe Mildura is a great option. We have a strong group of mature-age students (students aged 21 and over), and because we are a smaller campus, our students benefit from more one-on-one time with La Trobe staff.

Information for mature-age applicants

Tertiary Enabling Program

The Tertiary Enabling Program is an award winning preparatory program for mature age students delivered in Albury-Wodonga, Bendigo, Mildura and Shepparton.

For detailed course and contact information, please visit the Tertiary Enabling Program page.

Special Tertiary Admissions Test workshops

The Mildura Campus runs preparation workshops for the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) Multiple Choice. 

The STAT Multiple Choice is a two-hour aptitude test that helps universities assess your academic potential. It is made up of 70 questions that test the skills considered important for tertiary success. La Trobe uses it for Mature-Age Special Entry to most courses.

The workshop looks at the type of questions in the STAT, to help you feel more at ease about it. We run the workshop in early October every year.

You may not need to do the STAT to get into the course of your choice. Please contact us to discuss the entry requirements for our courses.
