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

We’re here every weekday. You can visit us face-to-face in the Library or drop in via Zoom.

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.
