Study online now and on campus later
In response to COVID-19, La Trobe University is closely following the advice of State and Federal health authorities.
As the situation evolves, the courses we offer, and how we offer them, may need to adapt. For example, how we deliver some courses might change from face-to-face to online for a while; academic start dates and subject availabilities might be adjusted for some courses to ensure that students can progress; and access to work-integrated learning opportunities such as clinical placements might be limited for a period of time. However, our aim is to always provide an excellent learning experience and outcomes for our students.
We will make our best efforts to limit disruption and to inform future students as soon as possible if any changes are made to our current courses.
In the meantime, please go ahead with your application now for our Semester 2 intake which is due to start on 20th July. Book a consultation or call us if anything is unclear and we’ll be happy to help.
