We teach both domestic and international students in a nurturing environment. Best of all, our Diploma students receive credit for their studies and enter the second year of their preferred degree.

Best of all, students here in Melbourne have access to University facilities from day one!

The right pathway for you

International students who complete our Foundation programs can enter the first year of a chosen degree at the university. We offer three different streams to choose from.

Domestic and international students who complete a diploma program (in 8 or 12 months) are able to gain entry into the second year of their chosen course at the university, meaning that they will graduate with a diploma and a bachelor degree within the 3 or 4 year period, depending on the chosen course of study.

Higher Education Short Courses

If you are a domestic student returning to study, try one of our 4-unit Higher Education Short Courses. These courses are fully government subsidised and you will receive a Commonwealth Supported Place.

Once you finish the 4-unit (1 Trimester Higher Education Short Course of your choice, you may progress, with full credit, into one of Diploma programs and after an additional Trimester of study, articulate into the second year of a degree at La Trobe University.

This is a very cost and time efficient way to return to study and accelerate your pathway to La Trobe University.
