The Learning Hub

Two students sitting together studying.

The Learning Hub is the place for every student, at every level, on every campus to develop and extend your academic skills.

The Learning Hub will help you to easily find learning resources to support you throughout your degree. In each of our campus hubs, we offer workshops, walk-ins and consultations.

Alongside subject LMS resources, Student Support Tutors, and resources like Achieve@Uni and Lynda.com, The Learning Hub offers you fundamental skills and the support to excel at university. The Learning Hub offers small group and one-to-one advice from Peer Learning Advisors, Student Learning Lecturers, English Language Development tutors, Library Learning Advisors and other expert tutors.

We are currently building an online Learning Hub, to create a single place to find eLearning tools across La Trobe University. You will be able to access self-paced learning activities when it suits you and will be able to access advice and workshops from wherever you are.
