La Trobe University, believes that higher education has the power to transform people and societies. Their goal is to make a difference to their students, staff, and the communities they serve.

In 2016, La Trobe was ranked in the QS Top 50 Under 50 for the first time, and 56 in the 2017 Times Higher Education 200 Under 50 Rankings. They are also in the world's top 400 universities in all three major ranking agencies: QS World University Rankings 2016-2017, Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2016-2017 and the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 2016.

La Trobe's research is focused on resolving some of the greatest challenges of our time. Researchers in facilities like the La Trobe Institute of Molecular Science and the Centre for Agribioscience are driving new ways to fight disease, and tackle climate change, drought and other threats to Australian agriculture.

Work placements are an important part of La Trobe's courses and students find work experience with organisations like CSIRO, the Australian Synchrotron, PwC and the University's partner hospitals. Students also receive hands-on training in facilities including a TV studio, an archaeological dig simulation site, moot court, and on field trips to places like Victoria's alpine wilderness.

La Trobe encourages students to participate in overseas study programs including nursing in Nepal, nanotechnology in Tokyo, and Indigenous studies in the Philippines. In 2016, La Trobe awarded travel grants and scholarships to 950 undergraduate and postgraduate students to study with partners like National University of Singapore, San Diego State University and Stockholm University.

The University has eight campuses in Victoria and NSW and is the largest provider of university education in regional Victoria. The University has more than 190,000 graduates. It's an impressive group that includes CEOs, parliamentarians, human rights activists, medical researchers and Olympians.
