What is StudyFlex?

La Trobe offers world-class, industry-designed learning both online and on campus. Experience both with StudyFlex, which lets you shape your degree to suit your lifestyle and location.

If a course has a StudyFlex label, it means even though that course is delivered at a specific campus, either:

  • at least one third of its subjects are Flex subjects, or
  • it includes at least two majors that have at least four Flex subjects each.

You can study these Flex subjects online or on campus. The choice is yours.

It’s a great way to add online study into your on-campus degree – or the other way around. And if your course is offered at other locations, StudyFlex helps you connect with students from all of those campuses to share knowledge and build new networks.

How do Flex subjects work?

When you enrol each semester, you’ll choose how you want to study your available Flex subjects for that semester: online or on campus.

Each StudyFlex course will have a different mix of Flex subjects: they might be available throughout your course’s duration, or they might be concentrated in a specific period. They might make up a third of your course, or they make up all of it. It all depends on the specific needs of your subjects and what you’re studying.

How do I know if I have a StudyFlex course or Flex subjects?

Check the list below to see if your course is a StudyFlex course.

Flex subjects are available to both domestic and international students, but for international students, your choices of how you undertake Flex subjects could be affected by visa requirements and the amount of your degree you can study online.

Even if your course doesn’t have the StudyFlex label, it might still offer some Flex subjects. It could also include Flex majors, which have at least four Flex subjects, or Flex minors, which have at least two. Review your course’s structure in the University Handbook to best understand how Flex subjects could be available to you.

How do I choose StudyFlex

Ready to combine the convenience of online learning with the experience of on-campus study?

If your course offers StudyFlex, you can simply head to StudentOnLine and select your Flex subjects for the semester.

  • If you’re enrolled in an on-campus course:
    • Select the ‘[Location] – online’ subject
  • If you’re enrolled in an online course:
    • Select the ‘[Location]’ subject

Remember: what you choose when you enrol in each Flex subject will decide how you study for the rest of the semester. So while some activities might be shared between study modes, like a subject offering tutorials online and on campus, whichever mode you're in after the first two weeks of semester is the one you’ll be enrolled in for the rest of semester..

Enrol via StudentOnline now.

If the on-campus or online delivery mode of a Flex subject has low enrolments, that mode may be cancelled for the semester.

Students have two weeks of the semester to finalise their enrolment for that semester, including study modes and subjects. After that, you can only amend your enrolment with an approved Variation of Enrolment.

International students may enrol in StudyFlex subject instances as long as they comply with the online and off-campus subject rules for international students.
