Disability Support

Contact our staff

La Trobe Melbourne is committed to providing equal opportunities for students with disabilities and promotes strategies to develop a flexible teaching and learning environment which is able to meet the needs of a diverse range of students.

La Trobe Melbourne encourages students to provide information (including medical or other professional advice) regarding the nature of their disability and special needs during the application and enrolment process. It is important that students provide La Trobe Melbourne with these details as early as possible so that we can assess students' support needs and ensure that they are able to succeed in their chosen program of study.

After assessment of a student's needs, La Trobe Melbourne may wish to hold further discussions with the student and if applicable, their agent. Given this, early notification and any supporting documentation from medical professionals are essential.   

La Trobe Melbourne is committed to providing a teaching and learning environment which promotes dignity, acknowledges students' rights to privacy and confidentiality, and promotes an awareness of students' needs and rights. Therefore, La Trobe Melbourne is able to make reasonable accommodations to support students with disabilities throughout their studies and ensure that they have equal access to the teaching and learning environment.
