The team of Peer Learning Advisors had a comprehensive knowledge of all of the topics I was struggling with and were able to help me with any questions I had. They are very relatable, because they had completed the same classes as I had, which allowed me to relax whilst talking to them about my studies.

The Mildura La Trobe campus were always so helpful. I needed some career advice and spoke to a staff member who was able to give me advice about how to set out my resume. At La Trobe you’re not just a number and you can clearly see that you do matter. The university wants you to succeed and find a job.
