Undergraduate packaged offers available in 2022

La Trobe’s undergraduate packaged offers provide an alternative pathway to your preferred Bachelor’s degree. When you’ve successfully completed the Diploma, you can then claim your place in a pre-selected Bachelor’s degree with advanced standing of up to one-year full-time study.

Studying a Diploma will give you the full university experience. You’ll learn alongside Bachelor students in the same subjects while receiving additional help and guidance from dedicated support advisers and mentors.

Application information

Undergraduate degrees

Prerequisites for the packaged undergraduate courses are usually identical to those of the standalone Bachelor’s degrees. However, some admissions criteria – such as a higher ATAR – may vary due to the high demand for these courses.

Postgraduate degrees

Once you’ve completed the undergraduate degree, admission into the postgraduate course is dependent on you meeting the minimum published selection and admission criteria for that course.

You can defer commencement of your postgraduate degree, but you must commence in the first available intake period no more than 12 months after the completion of your undergraduate degree.7

The undergraduate component of the package is offered to domestic students as a Commonwealth-supported place (CSP) – which means that your spot is subsidised by the Australian Government.

The postgraduate Master of Teaching has a limited number of CSPs available. Students entering into a packaged Master of Teaching may be eligible for CSP (subject to availability). Students offered a CSP for the postgraduate course will not be eligible for any discounts.

Eligible students offered a full-fee paying place will receive a discount of up to 30% on the postgraduate course fees.5, 6
