  • English Language Hub – improving vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, speaking and writing.
  • Maths Hub – support for mathematics, statistics and numeracy.

Choose your Learning Hub location:

  • Albury/Wodonga campus: in the library, at the PLAs desk.
  • Bendigo campus: Library,  Level 1 – queue up and book in via Ask La Trobe.
  • Melbourne/Bundoora campus: Library, level 1
  • Mildura campus: in the library, at the PLAs desk.

Census Dates


Remember, if you are having second thoughts about a subject, or circumstances mean you need to reduce your study load, to avoid paying the subject fee and avoiding a fail grade, you can withdraw for Semester 2 subjects by 31st August, 2018.  If you leave it to 26th of September, 2018, you will have to pay the subject fee cost, but you can still avoid the fail grade on your academic transcript. After the 26th September 2018, you will both have a fail grade on your transcript and have to pay.  It is all explained via this link if you need more clarification.
