Melbourne, Australia—Study Abroad
This program is offered through Globalinks at La Trobe University.
La Trobe University’s Bendigo campus is the University’s second largest campus. It is situated on 33 hectares of attractive bushland, approximately 150 kilometers (93 miles) from Melbourne and is close to the Bendigo city center. The size of the campus makes it easy to find your way around, get to know people and feel part of the university community. Travel between central Melbourne and the campus is easy: it takes about 90 minutes by train or by car.
La Trobe University's Bendigo campus is the University's second largest campus with more than 4,000 local and international students studying courses in this regional Victorian city. Students have access to a full range of services and facilities, including on-campus accommodation in residential halls or apartments. The campus is host to the A$3.3 million Central Victorian Innovation Park. The first publicly-funded and university-endorsed technology business park in Victoria, it contributes to regional economic growth by supporting new innovation-based businesses.
Bendigo offers a full suite of subjects which will complement the study needs of most study abroad students. Bendigo also offers a number of niche courses only available for study in Bendigo with key strengths in health sciences, education and visual arts. It’s especially popular with Study Abroad students seeking courses in Outdoors and Adventure Education, for which the campus has a worldwide reputation.
Because of the relatively small size of the campus and city, the student community is strong and inclusive. Whatever your interests, you’ll find like-minded friends and a fantastic range of social and recreational activities that enable you to enjoy your time at La Trobe Bendigo to the fullest. Clubs and Societies form a solid base for social activities and the Bendigo Student Association (BSA) actively supports the various committees in running their events. Study Abroad Ambassador Scholarships are also available to students at this campus.
