Chisholm Institute

La Trobe University has worked in partnership with Chisholm Institute since 2011. Our partnership continues to grow and strengthen.

If you're a Chisholm graduate you will have a range of pathways into La Trobe. You can even complete our La Trobe degrees across various Chisholm's campuses.
