La Trobe’s online learning is so much better than others I’ve experienced. It’s very accessible and user friendly. The library is awesome – you don’t spend your time searching for a needle in a haystack!

I really must commend La Trobe on their online learning support. It’s made a big difference for me – both the excellent course content and the quality of the online delivery.

I decided to study online because of the flexibility that online study offers. It’s so convenient, I can study anywhere, at any time, in any part of the world. The La Trobe staff have all been really lovely – they’re really nice, very welcoming and very supportive of the online environment. I would definitely recommend La Trobe to anybody who is interested in studying online.
