Special conditionsStudents must be eligible for a visa in the host country. This will be established as part of the application process. For students with particular needs, the La Trobe Student Mobility subject will work with students on an individual basis to assess whether these needs are able to be accommodated within the subject. While in many cases we will be able to make reasonable adjustments, due to the nature of the trips, which will generally include time based in rural locations, we may not be able to accommodate all cases.
