About studying online

At La Trobe Online we bring 50 years of knowledge straight to you, wherever you are in the world.

Our online courses are designed to be highly flexible. So you can choose how and when you study.

Learn in your own time and space and interact with your lecturers and research supervisors via our Learning Management System (LMS).

Our courses are backed by industry accreditations and offer opportunities to put what you learn into practice. In fact, our Business School is among a select few in the world to offer courses with prestigious accreditation from the European Foundation of Management Development. This is only awarded to high-quality business and management programs with an international perspective.

The learning outcomes for online students are the same as those achieved through face-to-face study, and the same highly qualified staff teach both, so you will get the same experience regardless of whether you are on campus or online.

With all the course material available online, you simply need to develop a flexible learning style that works for you. Whether you’re working full time, juggling family or can’t make it to classes, studying online is as flexible as you are.

With multiple enrolment intakes throughout the year, you can begin studying much earlier than you think.

Tailored for online learning and real-world experience

We believe in creating courses that combine the rigour of the academic world with the experience and know-how of industry. We recognise the need for developing strong professional connections while developing the skills needed to find and explore new opportunities.

Our online courses and subjects are designed in collaboration with our academic staff, so you’ll benefit from their expertise and real-world experience.

Studying online provides greater flexibility for you to engage:

  • when you want (daytime, evenings, weekends)
  • where you want (home, the office or on the move) and
  • how you want (accelerated or part-time).
