La Trobe University

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

Brief information

According to AbbreviationFinder, founded in 1967, La Trobe University was one of Australia’s first public universities and the third in the entire Victoria Territory. It was named after Charles Joseph La Trobe, the first governor of Victoria.

In the meantime, the university has gained a very good reputation for the high level of its research and teaching. It is divided into five faculties: Education, Health Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, Business, Economics and Law, and Science, Technology and Engineering. Especially in the fields of Arts and Humanities, the university is highly regarded around the world, and the Biomedicine course is even considered outstanding.

The 2009 Sweeney Research Student Report ranked La Trobe University as a “Leading Victorian University” and the Good University Guide 2009 gave it four stars in a total of seven categories, including “Positive Graduate Outcomes” and “Overall Satisfaction”. Generally she belongs among the top 350 universities worldwide – at least that’s what the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, the QS World University Rankings and others say.

It is also very committed to promoting student exchanges between different countries and cultures and works with many partner universities and companies around the world. Its role as a founding member of the International Network of Universities also reflects its global orientation.

International students can choose from many different fields of study and academic degrees or complete a semester abroad, a language course or similar.

On the site, students have access to a world-renowned library, which they can use for their studies, as well as many other facilities such as museums and restaurants. This is where most international students study, as all five faculties are represented with courses, and the location makes the campus very attractive.

Finally, there are other regional locations such as Albury-Wodonga, Mildura, Shepparton and others. They all accommodate only a few hundred students each and are of particular interest to local students from the respective region due to their relatively long distance from Melbourne.
