Study online now and on campus later.
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.
We look forward to welcoming all of our students back onto our campuses once it is both safe and practical to do so, and in line with Government directions. We anticipate offering a mix of face-to-face and online teaching in Semester 1, 2021 across all of our campuses – detailed planning is underway based on the likely requirement for physical distancing.
