Enrichment opportunities

Learning enrichment opportunities are embedded through both formal studies and opportunities to develop skills in other activities.  As a Hallmark Scholar you will be part of a select group of students able to choose activities that will help you achieve your educational and career goals.

Examples of enrichment activities include:

International study tour (for Hallmark Scholars who enrolled between 2014 - 2016)

During the third year of your course you will travel overseas with your fellow Hallmark scholars to experience a different culture and reflect on how you and your studies fit into the larger global picture.

International study (for Hallmark Scholars who enrol from 2017 onwards)

If you’ve received a Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence Scholarship, you will have a $1500 overseas study bursary to enhance your education. Hallmark staff can work with you and the Semester Exchange team from La Trobe International to help you choose an overseas university destination that will fit with your course and impress your future employers.

Don’t want to be away for a whole semester?  A shorter academic program, clinical placement, internship or volunteering opportunity might be a better fit for you. Hallmark staff can help select the overseas course that suits your career and study aspirations, and assist you with your application for a grant or scholarship to help fund it.

Internship activities

Choose an internship with one of our Research Focus Areas. You will have opportunities to take part in multi-disciplinary research addressing real problems and discovering how you can contribute to that research individually or by combining your ideas and talents with others.

Best of all, internships can count towards your degree. Internships are embedded in the second-year Hallmark elective subject.

For students enrolling in 2017, Hallmark staff are available to help you apply for an internship or work placement in an external organisation to kickstart your career. You can get subject credit for these in third year if you enrol in either HUS3WPP or SHE3FRW.

Representing La Trobe

Be one of the lucky students to travel interstate or overseas to represent La Trobe at a major student conference or forum.  In recent years we’ve sent Hallmark students to the University Scholars Leadership Symposium in Hong Kong and Hanoi, the annual National Student Leadership Symposium in Canberra, and national events for the Australian Futures Project, to name a few.
