An online orientation for new students

Ready4Uni will help you as a new student at La Trobe University. We recognise that every student's transition will be different, so we've structured this website so that you can look at sections or topics at your own leisure, before Orientation, or as a reference throughout your first semester with us.

Check out the Ready4Uni video and the sections below to find out exactly what's on Ready4Uni and what other programs and resources are available to support your transition to uni.
