Programs and activities

La Trobe International runs a number of programs and activities for international students to encourage student engagement and participation and to help you enjoy your time at La Trobe.


La Trobe University's official Orientation for newly arrived students. A week full of information, interaction and fun, so make sure you attend!

Student Volunteer Host Program

Every semester we invite current international students to become hosts for new international students.


Volunteering gives you the opportunity to get involved in the local community. You'll gain skills and experience, network, get training and exposure to the Australian culture and community in action.

Weekend Break Program

Students from any campus can spend a weekend with host families recruited from another La Trobe Campus, providing an opportunity to experience a new environment and cultural exchange.

Language and Cultural Exchange (LACE)

This program enriches the knowledge and lives of participants, as international students are matched with those from Australia and other countries to share each other's cultures, customs, food, music and more.

Ready Set Go!

Workshops catered specifically for international students who are completing their studies.
