Studying in 2021
We look forward to welcoming students onto our Victorian campuses in Semester 2 in line with Government directions.
We are planning to offer face-to-face classes in Semester 2, 2021 in many subjects across our campuses, though some classes will continue to be delivered online (particularly lectures). As always, we are prioritising student and staff safety and working within the guidelines provided by the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services.
Some of your classes (particularly lectures) may continue to be delivered online for the following reasons:
- providing classes for students unable to return to Australia
- accessibility for students and teaching staff with vulnerable health conditions or those restricted from attending campus in person
- the subject is offered in fully online mode only.
Student support services are available in face-to-face operations on our Victorian campuses, and we will continue to provide online access to these services in recognition of the improved access for students this has provided.
The health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and community remains La Trobe’s top priority and we will continue to ensure University operations comply with the Government’s public health directions.
For more information, please check the COVID-19 Student FAQs.
