About La Trobe University
In 1967, La Trobe University opened its doors with a founding mission: to serve communities through greater access to higher education. For more than 50 years, we’ve provided a pathway to success to people from all walks of life, and continue to transform the lives of individuals and communities.
We’ve worked hard to develop a global reputation, while expanding our reach to seven campuses across Victoria and New South Wales. Our students gain the technical skills they need for the jobs of the future, but also the human strengths of resilience, passion, curiosity and empathy that are essential in a modern workplace.
The higher education environment is changing rapidly, and La Trobe is well placed to excel. By leveraging our strengths and ethos of excellence and social inclusion, we’re redefining what it means to be a great university for the 21st century.
