Welcome to New International Students

Congratulations on starting your first Semester with us at La Trobe University! We hope you had a wonderful beginning of the student journey at La Trobe and you are settling in.

Attend Orientation

La Trobe’s Orientation kicks off across each campus from 24 February, running until the start of the semester. There are loads of activities and events on offer so you can acquaint with your teachers, classmates, student clubs and societies, support services and our facilities to make you feel more confident as joining the La Trobe community.

Free food and wonderful prizes are giving away too! Attend as many orientation sessions as possible, and share your orientation photos using the hashtag #MyLTI to win La Trobe hoodies or scarves!

Use the Online Orientation planner tool to build your personalised orientation program.
