Change of preference

Make La Trobe your 1st choice.

La Trobe’s supportive atmosphere combines with practical skills, industry connections and personalised teaching to help you reach your career goals.

Once you receive your ATAR in December you have limited time to change your course preferences, so give yourself the best chance of getting your dream course.

Explore your course options

Find a course by ATAR using the ATAR Wizard to see how your ATAR matches up to your preferred course.


If you don't get the ATAR you need, you can use a pathway option to get into your preferred course.

Questions? We're here to help.


Q: I didn't get the ATAR for the course I want. Do I need to remove it from my preference list?

A: No. 'Clearly-in' ATARs for previous years are just a guide – they may change from year to year. Even if you think you might just miss out based on your ATAR, the entry score for this year might be lower. Make sure you use all your 12 preferences to cover all avenues to your preferred course.
