​Welcome to Orientation

Students who attend Orientation are more likely to feel prepared for university and succeed! Orientation is your first chance to:

  • Meet your academics and find out about your course
  • Find out more about studying online and the digital platforms you will be using
  • Feel more confident about assignment writing, finding a job and managing your wellbeing via interactive workshops
  • Get yourself set up for the year before classes start - meet other people from your course, sort out any admin issues and have your questions answered.

La Trobe offers a range of information sessions, fun activities and social events to help you settle in to the La Trobe community.
