The application process to study at La Trobe can vary depending on the course level you’re applying for, if you’re currently studying Year 12 and if you’re a local or international student.
If you’re in Year 12 and looking to apply to study an undergraduate degree (such as a Bachelor’s or Associate Degree), the most common way will be through VTAC or UAC. Your application will be assessed based on your Year 12 results and you’ll be able to apply for multiple courses across different universities.
If you’re looking to apply for a single course, you’ll have the option to apply direct to La Trobe University.
If you’re looking for an alternative entry to the traditional ATAR requirement, we have a range of pathway and entry options depending on your circumstances.

A Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) is a place at a university or higher education provider where the government pays part of your fees. This is a subsidy, not a loan, and you don't have to pay it back. This subsidy does not cover the entire cost of your study, you will need to pay the rest, called the 'student contribution amount'.
The amount is determined by the University and depends on the number of subjects you take within different bands, or categories. The fees for each band are based on a full-time study load. Pro-rata fees apply to students taking part-time or overloaded studies.
You are eligible to apply for a CSP if you are an Australian citizen, New Zealand citizen, or permanent resident of Australia.
Many La Trobe courses are available part-time. This means you study fewer subjects than in a full-time load, and take longer to complete your course. In many cases you can start a course part-time and move to full-time study later.
Once you have received an offer into a course at La Trobe University, you may be eligible for credit if you have previously completed TAFE (at a Diploma level or higher) and/or tertiary study.
If you have not yet received an offer to study at La Trobe University, we can’t confirm how much credit you will be eligible for. You can use our Credit Search tool as a guide to help you get an idea of how much credit you may be eligible for.
