Special Tertiary Admissions Test workshops

The Albury-Wodonga Campus runs a preparation workshop for the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) Multiple Choice.

The STAT Multiple Choice is a two-hour aptitude test that helps universities assess your academic potential. It is made up of 70 questions that test the skills considered important for tertiary success. La Trobe uses it for Mature-Age Special Entry to most courses.

The workshop explores the types of questions in the STAT, to help you feel more at ease about it. We run the workshop in early October every year.

You may not need to do the STAT to get into the course of your choice. Please contact us to discuss the entry requirements for our courses.
