Welcome La Trobe University

La Trobe is a globally recognised university, transforming the lives of its students, many being the first in their family to attend university. We are consistently ranked among the top 500 universities in the world and are ranked in the global top 50 amongst universities under 50 years old. The 2012 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) Rankings places us number one in the nation for research in Microbiology and equal top in other areas. Our recently articulated 'Future Ready' objectives are set to elevate us even further in Australian and world rankings.

La Trobe offers a wide range of disciplinary and professional degrees; we offer students an extensive range of enrichment experiences within, or alongside, assessed curriculum; and we have initiated a program to re-invigorate Teaching and Learning practices to meet the changing needs of students and their adoption of emerging technologies.

Our graduates enjoy excellent employment outcomes in a diverse range of companies, as well as government and community organisations within Australia and around the world. We are excited about the further integration of La Trobe Melbourne with the University through the construction of the new $45M La Trobe Melbourne building, central to all of the amenities and life of the campus.

I encourage you to consider La Trobe Melbourne as your pathway to La Trobe University and invite you to contact us with any questions you may have.
