International student pathways

Found your ideal course, but don’t quite meet the academic or English requirements? Don’t worry. If you’re an international student, you may be eligible for a pathway program to get you into a La Trobe course. We offer pathway programs through our on-campus provider La Trobe College Australia (LTCA).

You’ll study at our Melbourne and Sydney campuses, so you get the university experience from day one. Feel supported by expert teachers who understand the unique needs of international students. Enjoy access to free services including one-on-one tutoring and English improvement sessions.

With programs that range in length from 10-week blocks to 12 months, LTCA is helping thousands of international students like you gain access to La Trobe University.

Undergraduate pathways

Do you need help to meet the academic entry requirements for your preferred undergraduate degree? LTCA offers Foundation Studies and Diploma programs to prepare you for undergraduate study.

These programs provide pathways to a range of undergraduate degrees. The Foundation Studies programs are equivalent to an Australian secondary school qualification and prepare you to enter the first year of a degree. The Diploma programs help you transition into the second year.

Postgraduate pathways

Want to study a Master’s degree but don’t meet the academic and/or English requirements? Our Postgraduate Enabling Program (PEP) provides a pathway into a wide range of La Trobe University’s Master’s degrees.

Articulation agreements

As well as our pathway courses, we also have articulation agreements with partner institutions around the globe. Completing an approved articulation course guarantees that when you enter an eligible La Trobe course, you’ll receive credit for your previous studies (also known as ‘advanced standing’).

English tuition

Don’t meet the language requirements of your preferred course? Study English on-campus in Sydney or Melbourne with LTCA, then progress directly to your pathway course or La Trobe degree.
