A very warm welcome to you from all of us at La Trobe University Australia. Australia is extremely multicultural and so is our university, with more than 8 000 students from 110 countries studying with us annually. At La Trobe we love celebrating and recognising different cultures from the Indian Film Festival to Chinese New Year and as Victorian people, we love attending festivals and events such as the cultural diversity week.
Everywhere you go, there is something special to see and do. Australia is a country and continent surrounded by the Indian and Pacific oceans with breathtaking costal views and beaches. We have six states (Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, New South Wales, Western Australia, South Australia) and two territories (Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory – which is home to Canberra, Australia’s capital city).
Hugging the tip of Australia's east coast, Victoria is Australia's second-smallest state, covering 227 600 square kilometres – roughly the size of the British Isles; with a population of approximately 5 million people. Victoria has a mild, temperate climate with warm to hot summers, moderate autumns, cool to cold winters and sunny springs. Our 6 Victorian campuses are designed to accommodate for all weather conditions from beautiful outside grounds to cozy and stylish indoor spaces.
Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria, and is home to our largest campus which hosts over 25 000 students. Melbourne has been ranked the world's most liveable city for the sixth year running and scores the highest possible mark for all categories, including infrastructure, housing, education, access, environmental focus, crime rate, culture and cultural events, diversity and climate.
Australia is one of the safest destinations in the world, and all of our campuses have excellent safety records. Our Melbourne campus has security officers which are available at all hours to provide assistance and support, plus there is a 24-hour security hotline for emergencies.
Studying overseas is a life changing experience and we hope that you choose to come study with us!
