The La Trobe experience
Our world-class facilities and campus spaces make La Trobe unique and at Open Day you’ll have the chance to experience it yourself.
We’re investing more than $500 million into our facilities – and it shows. Across each of our campuses, you’ll find impressive learning spaces and resources to enhance your time at La Trobe.
Visitors attending our Sydney Campus will enjoy the new $10 million campus’s central location, along with access to the latest technology in our learning and study spaces – and of course, the stunning view of the major city’s sprawling CBD.
Open Day isn’t just your opportunity to learn about the course you want to study; it’s also your chance to get a clear idea of what careers it can lead to.
Career readiness is a priority at La Trobe, which is why we’ve developed our unique Career Ready Advantage program. Make sure you drop into your campus’s Career Ready Hub on Open Day for a chat with one of our friendly expert career advisers.
We’ll also be running ‘how-to’ LinkedIn sessions for students and parents at selected campuses, where you’ll get top tips on how to set up your profile, grow your connections and identify job opportunities using the number-one career development tool.
Furthermore, there’ll be career-oriented lectures available at selected campuses on Open Day, providing you with handy advice on how to prepare for your future career before, during and after uni.
Competitions, food and fun
Throughout the day, our social team will be interacting with guests and giving you the chance to win a range of instant prizes.
Hungry for more than course information? There’ll be a number of food options available at each campus on Open Day. Whet your appetite with a tasty selection of food trucks at our Bendigo Campus, or head to the Agora at the Melbourne Campus to scope out the range of cafés and restaurants serving food all year round. In between food sampling, campus tours and career advice, there’ll be live entertainment and immersive activities to take part in.
More than Study
La Trobe’s reputation for fun is perhaps no better demonstrated than with our huge range of clubs and societies. These are formed around areas of common interests or study, providing students the chance to immerse themselves in something they’re passionate about whilst making new friends.
At Open Day, many of our clubs and societies will be on show – including those which support philanthropic causes and minority groups – offering opportunities for you to connect with a range of causes.
You’ll need to register to attend Open Day.
