Become an International Alumni Ambassador

Want to contribute to the global La Trobe alumni community? Sign-up as International Alumni Ambassador!

As an Ambassador for the University, you will act as an ‘In-country Advisor’, creating a vital link between alumni in your area and La Trobe. You'll also play a key role in connecting local alumni with each other.

We'll call on you to deliver alumni networking events in your country, to support new graduates returning home or to provide advice to alumni visiting your country.

In return, you will receive access to special activities and offerings, including invitations to VIP La Trobe University events with senior staff (where applicable) and exclusive networking activities.

We are currently looking to build our alumni ambassador program, with the aim to have representatives across the globe!

To register your interest, or to find out who your local in-country ambassador is, please contact Kali Micallef, Manager of Alumni Relations - International.

Buddy Program

Become a buddy

As an  alumni buddy, you'll connect with La Trobe students studying on a university exchange to help ease their transition into another country and offer support as a local expert.

How you help your student is up to you. You can chat over email, catch up over a coffee, or even share a meal together!

This program recognises the welcoming role alumni can play in providing local advice, answering questions and being a friendly face in what, to a student, is a brand new place.

To register your interest in becoming an alumni buddy, please contact Jane Kasby, Manager of Alumni Relations - International.

This program is intended to be a social, friendly connection only. All students are supported through La Trobe Abroad for any serious concerns or matters.
