If you have subjects to complete in your course at the end of 2024, you will be transferred to the equivalent La Trobe degree, the Bachelor of Information Technology (on-line).
You can apply to transfer earlier (i.e. for Semester 2, 2023 or Semester 1 or 2, 2024) via the “Domestic Undergraduate students” information on the Course Transfer webpage.
Please note that an early transfer cannot be guaranteed and that your application will be assessed as per La Trobe’s Course transfer policy. Meeting minimum prerequisites does not guarantee an offer of a place. Entry into all La Trobe courses is based on competitive selection.
When making your application, you should also consider:
- As part of your Course Transfer application, you will need to apply for Advanced Standing (credit for previous study). Your application will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and it cannot be guaranteed that you would receive credit for all Didasko subjects that you successfully completed; and,
- The capping of the subject fees will no longer apply, and you would be subject to the standard fee amounts and be required to pay the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) twice per year; and,
- There are only two majors available in the Bachelor of Information Technology (on-line): Software engineering and Cloud analytics. This may affect the number of subjects for which you may be eligible for Advanced Standing (credit for previous study), based on the subjects you have completed as part of your La Trobe-Didasko course.
We are currently working through the remainder of the study periods this year. For students who were already due to transition to La Trobe mid-year, we do not expect there to be a change to plans.
Business students will transfer to the core La Trobe course in time to commence study in Semester 2, 2023.
We are currently assessing the timeline for transferring IT students and will provide advice about this once confirmed.
Once we have undertaken the mapping to transfer students into La Trobe core courses, more advice can be provided on the specific remaining subjects required to complete your course.
Once we have undertaken the mapping to transfer students into La Trobe equivalent courses, advice on options for choosing a major can be provided.
La Trobe does offer Diploma and Associate Degree exit options. Once we have undertaken the mapping to transfer students into La Trobe core courses, advice on Alternative Exit award options available to you can be provided.
You can choose to graduate with a sub-degree (e.g. a Diploma) that is related to your current course if you have met the academic requirements for the award. Once the course transfers have occurred later in the year, you would be able to graduate with a sub-degree associated with the new course if you meet the academic requirements (which may include equivalent subjects undertaken via Didasko).
Yes, when you have completed the academic requirements for the course in which you are enrolled, you can apply to graduate. You will receive a La Trobe Testamur and transcript regardless of whether you have transferred courses or not.
We are currently working through the plans for alternative exits and will provide more information shortly.
If you complete your final subjects before you transfer to the core La Trobe degree, you will graduate with the Bachelor of Applied Cloud Technology.
