Returning to study

There’s a lot to consider when you're thinking of returning to study, but we’re here to help.

Whether you're looking to study for the first time at uni (undergraduate), or advancing your career with a postgraduate qualification, returning to study can be a daunting prospect.

Our close-knit campus is the perfect environment for mature age students to succeed. Many of our students are parents, TAFE students or full time professionals, taking the next step in their career. You can get a taste of uni through our Tertiary Preparation Program, use your work and life experience as entry into a course or take the next step from your TAFE qualification to a uni degree.

We also offer pathway options and support services available for returning students.

Our student advisors are available to talk to you. Once you book a one-on-one consultation, we will work with you to plan out a pathway to further your studies.

I was worried that I might not be able to juggle my other commitments alongside my studies, with three children of my own. I was worried that university wasn’t a place that I’d fit into. But that hasn’t been the case at all and I’m enjoying being at the Albury-Wodonga Campus.

There are so many pathways into higher education, there’s always an option. For me, it was via TAFE, which ended up being a huge boost. I completed my Diploma of Community Services at TAFE, then applied for the Degree at the La Trobe Albury-Wodonga Campus. I entered straight into the second year thanks for the credit I received from my Diploma.
