Returning to study

Whether you're looking to study for the first time at university (Undergraduate) or return to study to advance your career with a Postgraduate qualification, returning to study can be a daunting prospect.

Our close knit campus is the perfect environment for mature age students to succeed. Many of our students are parents, TAFE students or full time professionals, taking the next step in their career. You can get a taste of uni through our Tertiary Preparation Program , use your work and life experience as entry into a course or take the next step from your TAFE qualification to a uni degree.

Our team love talking to prospective students and you can book in for a one-on-one course advice appointment so we can work with you to plan your pathway to further study.

My decision to go back to university to study nursing was quite an easy one. The nursing degree at La Trobe Mildura is reported as very reputable by local nurses in the community, and having the opportunity to carry out my degree locally has enabled me to achieve my study goals whilst also being able to stay close to my family.

Going out into the workplace for the last five years has really given me an understanding of what’s required at different levels of business. Coming back to Uni, as a mature age student, I can sit and listen intently and understand the relevance because I’ve already seen it in practice.
