HOW IT WORKS
  1. Meet with a Study Abroad Advisor
  2. Meet with your academic advisor to discuss courses
  3. Complete the study abroad application process*
  4. Pay UWL resident institution tuition
  5. Pay housing and meals at the host institution abroad. 
  6. Spend your semester or academic year in Australia!
*Students need to first start the UWL study abroad application
process. Students can ONLY start the La Trobe application process after
our office nominates students. 
VISA INFORMATION
Students MUST apply for a student visa in advance. The application process is
online, but students can only start the visa application process after they have
been accepted at La Trobe.

UWL DOES NOT arrange student visas. Students are required to independently
arrange for their student visa and need to be aware that this is a TIME SENSITIVE
requirement that will include an additional out-of-pocket cost.

visas, @ Travel.Gov-Australia and @ La Trobe website.

FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Students will pay ONLY UWL resident tuition while abroad, even if the student is currently paying out-of-state tuition. Students need to be enrolled full-time with a minimum of 12 credits hours. Please refer to the Budget Sheet at the top of this online brochure for more information. Exchange programs are very competitive and placements are limited. However, students who are not offered an exchange placement can still participate as a direct enroll student. This means that students will be billed La Trobe tuition rather than UWL resident tuition.
