Program Information:
Our Semester in Melbourne – La Trobe University program offers the best of all worlds: top-notch academics, a vibrant campus, and an exciting city life. Set in the green, leafy suburb of Bundoora, you’re only 30 minutes from the city of Melbourne, Australia’s hub for arts, education, culture, entertainment, shopping, and business. Easily zip into the city for an art opening or concert, swim and surf at the famous St. Kilda beach, or retreat to a more serene campus. La Trobe is known as a highly ranked research university, and you’ll learn from distinguished professors. Take courses in over 70 academic areas, including some sensational offerings in Aboriginal art and culture.

  • Large, diverse multinational student body
  • Vibrant campus community with highly active residence life
  • Robust academic offerings, from liberal arts to education, applied sciences to media studies
  • On campus living with single dorm rooms—no roommates!
  • Extensive sports facilities on campus
  • Hundreds of clubs and student societies to join

Location:
Voted the "Most Livable City in the World" a record six times in a row, Melbourne is often referred to as the cultural capital of Australia. As the capital city of the state of Victoria, it's home to 3.2 million people from all over the world. It has a thriving downtown, easily reachable from CISabroad's two study abroad programs at La Trobe University and the University of Melbourne. And, the smaller neighborhoods that surround the city are equally vibrant.

The culture of the city of Melbourne is often compared to U.S. cities like Boston or San Francisco. Easily navigable by walking, biking, or public transportation, the city offers unique experiences around every corner. Coffee houses, international cuisine and street food, theatre, music, and art all thrive in this metropolis. Want to hit the beach? Melbourne's most famous beach, St Kilda, is a 20 minute tram ride from the city center. Explore wine country? The Yarra Valley produces wines that rival any in the world. Just want to find a quiet spot in the city? Melbourne is full of green spaces and parks.

Locals in Melbourne are passionate about sports. Home to Aussie Rules Football and the iconic Melbourne Cricket Grounds (MCG), nearly every local will passionately cheer on a favorite team. International sporting events also take place every year in the city, including the Australian Open tennis tournament and the Melbourne Cup horse race. The beaches, the food, the sporting events, and the city itself will keep you riveted.
