Getting help and support

We are committed to providing equitable access to education under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005 to ensure that students with disability can access and participate in education on the same basis as other students.

A Disability Standards for Education 2005 Fact Sheet is available from the Australian Government Department of Education and Training which outlines the rights of students and requirements of the University under the Standards.

If you are a student with a disability, mental health issue or ongoing medical condition or if you care for a person with a disability, Disability Advisers can help you meet the requirements of your course through:

• adjustments to assessment and academic requirements
• advice on managing university study

More information can be found by contacting our Equity & Diversity team on 03 9479 2900 or by emailing equity@latrobe.edu.au or via the Equity & Diversity website.

If you have an indigenous background, La Trobe University offers a wide variety of support to help you in your course. For more information please contact our Indigenous support service available through the La Trobe University website.

Our courses and subjects are delivered at an academic English level, and the provision for in-course assistance is limited. La Trobe University recognises English programs from a number of institutions, if the language of your educational instruction was English, you will need to provide details of overseas equivalent Year 12 qualifications. Otherwise you must have attained an IELTS or equivalent score of 6.5 with no band lower than 6.0.
