Get one-to-one study support – see a PLA today!

There are so many advantages to one-on-one study support. From increasing motivation and boosting your confidence, to staying on track with study and assignments.

Get study support from a fellow student this semester by visiting a Peer Learning Advisor (PLA). PLAs are high performing La Trobe students specially trained to help other students.
