Information for research applicants – La Trobe University
Disclaimer: This information is provided in good faith and is correct at September 2021. Please confirm these details with Study Options before making a formal application.
If you want to complete a research programme at La Trobe University you first need to contact an academic supervisor and gain provisional approval for your project.
When contacting supervisors we recommend that you communicate your research intent in a concise but well thought through manner – academic staff will receive a lot of similar requests and are only likely to respond positively to the ones that demonstrate commitment and ability. It is also a good idea to attach a CV (no longer than two pages) and a copy of your academic transcripts.
