Student Advising

Our Mission

The Student Advising team offer individualised, case management support for students, providing them with one main point of contact within the University. Our advisors act as key mentors for students, helping to guide their transition into university and enable them to develop a sense of connection and community with La Trobe University. The advising team also assist students to clarify career goals, develop a sustainable educational plan, connect with appropriate support mechanisms, develop positive learning and help-seeking behaviours and build resilience, motivation and self-efficacy.

  • Regional Senior Support Advisors work in partnership with students attending the campuses of Albury Wodonga, Bendigo, City, Mildura, Online and Shepparton as well as those in the Tertiary Enabling Programs and diploma programs to provide enriched and supportive experiences that enable student success.
  • The Senior Support Advisor, Scholarships provides proactive outreach, advice and support to identified groups. This cohort includes students on Equity and Access Scholarships, Care Leavers and Military Veterans.
  • Academic Advisors support commencing (first year) undergraduate commencing students in cohorts to develop self-regulation through developmental advising and specialised course advice.

Appointments can be booked via the La Trobe Career Hub.
