Enrichment opportunities

The Hallmark Program enriches your learning experience through formal study and skill building opportunities. You will be part of a select group of students who can choose experiences that will help you reach your educational and career goals.

Examples of enrichment activities include:

International study

If you’ve received a Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship, you will have a $1500 overseas study bursary to enhance your education. Hallmark staff can work with you and the Semester Exchange team from La Trobe International to help you choose an overseas university destination that fits with your course and enhances your employability.

If you don’t want to be away for a whole semester, you can choose a shorter academic program, such as a clinical placement, internship or volunteering opportunity. Hallmark staff can help you select the overseas course that suits you, and will assist with your application for grants or scholarships.

Internships

The Program gives you the opportunity to undertake an internship with a leading researcher at La Trobe. During the internship, you will contribute to a multi-disciplinary research project, either as an individual or as part of a group.

Internships are embedded in the second and third year Hallmark elective subjects and can count towards your degree. Hallmark staff can help you apply for an internship or work placement.

Represent La Trobe

Selected students will travel interstate or overseas to represent La Trobe at a major student conference or forum. In recent years we’ve sent Hallmark students to the University Scholars Leadership Symposium in Hong Kong and Hanoi, the annual National Student Leadership Symposium in Canberra, and national events for the Australian Futures Project, to name a few.
