Key terms explained
If you're applying to La Trobe with an ATAR, adjustment factors are additional considerations we can apply to your application based on your personal circumstances and performance. Adjustment factors may be added to your raw ATAR.
An entry scheme can boost your uni application and help you get into La Trobe, usually by adding adjustment factors to your raw ATAR score.
Pathways help you get into your chosen course through another qualification. For example, you may start in a La Trobe Diploma as one pathway to a Bachelor's degree. Going from Year 12 to TAFE and then uni is another, and so is starting in a related La Trobe degree and applying for a transfer to your chosen course.
Each course has different requirements you need to meet to be granted entry. These requirements are usually made up of qualifications, subjects or grades. Course prerequisites and other extra requirements such as interviews and portfolios are outlined on individual course pages under the 'Entry requirements' heading.
Prerequisites are the subjects you must have completed in previous study to be eligible for consideration in a specific uni course.

The Achieve Plus program was a really great experience for me. It helped me be sure of what I wanted to study at university and allowed me to get ahead in some subjects before I started. It acted as a gateway into university.
What sets La Trobe apart from other universities for me is that La Trobe rewards all forms of excellence, be it sport, leadership, the arts or academia. If we show that we're passionate and want to be there, La Trobe recognises that. It's given me so much confidence and motivation.
