Start your Postgrad studies
Whether you’re looking to further your career or start a new one, postgrad study can offer a range of benefits.
Enjoy flexible study options
One of the most challenging parts of diving into study can be balancing your work and family commitments. Many of our courses provide flexible part time and online study options that can work around your schedule.
Meet likeminded people
One of the biggest worries for people returning to study is being around younger students and not fitting in. Rest assured, the La Trobe community is friendly, supportive, and runs the gamut of age and experience. You’ll additionally get to connect with people through industry, research and collaboration, allowing you to expand your professional network and employment opportunities.
If you’re worried about the potential strain of further study, we have you covered with a range of support services. From counselling to childcare, we believe in helping students make the most of their opportunities.
