Frequently asked questions

On-campus teaching and research activities have resumed with COVIDSafe arrangements.

Please note that La Trobe University’s COVID-19 plan and policy settings outlined by the Victorian Government will guide our campus safety measures.

You will receive additional information on COVID-19 safety measures and our plans to reopen our campus once you have received confirmation that you have been selected to return to La Trobe.

The La Trobe Offshore Online Bursary was offered to students disadvantaged by the Australian border closure to recognise that they could not experience on-campus learning, services and facilities while offshore.

When you return to La Trobe, the Offshore Online Bursary will be removed. Any other scholarship, bursary or discount will be re-instated to your account at this time.

The health and safety of our students is La Trobe University’s highest priority, and our operations are being managed in accordance with the directions of the Victorian Government. As measures change, students’ announcements and updates will be supplied to you.

The level of activity underway on each campus is dependent on Government health directions, and the University regularly reviews its COVIDSafe Plan. Below is a summary of the University’s plan.
