About Aspire

Turn your community contributions into opportunities.

Have you been a leader? A volunteer? A key part of your community? Then we want to hear from you. Because at La Trobe, we know there’s more to being a good student than just your marks.

Our Aspire Early Admissions Program rewards your involvement in community, leadership and volunteering with an early conditional offer into your chosen course at La Trobe. This means you’ll know if you have a place at university in September, or even earlier.

You’ll also receive exclusive benefits designed to nurture your skills and give you the support you need to succeed at La Trobe and beyond.

With Aspire, you can lock in your future and set yourself up to succeed right now — and when you get here.

Aspire step-by-step

Here's how it all works:

  • Check whether you're eligible for Aspire.

  • Submit your application (Aspire applications open in April). If you're successful, you'll receive your early conditional offer by October, or even earlier. That means you've been accepted into your course, as long as you meet all the course's requirements.

  • Include your Aspire course in your VTAC/UAC preference list.

  • If you meet all prerequisites for your course (for example, having studied a certain subject in Year 12) and achieve the Aspire ATAR you need, your conditional offer will convert into a full offer in December. The Aspire ATAR is often a little different to the regular ATAR and could be the edge you need to nab your dream course.

If you’ve already finished Year 12, Aspire offers the benefit of minimal entry requirements (e.g. ATAR or equivalent academic performance in further study). Talk to us to find out how you should apply.
