Current student, Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws
“Be that annoying person who asks a million questions! This could save you lots of time...”
Due to circumstances beyond her control, Sarah was barely able to even complete her VCE, so she enrolled a TAFE business course. She worked full time for two and a half years and studied part-time at night. It all paid off when she was accepted into La Trobe’s Bachelor of Arts.
Her next goal was Law, so from the beginning, she asked question after question: how could she transfer to Law, what GPA would she need, how could she maintain high grades? Because she asked so many questions, Sarah knew exactly what she needed to do to get into Law…and she did!
Sarah thought when she started uni it would be all about the study. But she soon discovered she needed support, so she got involved in drama and theatre, and she now has a much more rounded uni life.Sarah’s tips
