Aspire Early Entry Program

At La Trobe, there's more than one way into uni. The Aspire Early Entry Program is a way to access your preferred course and secure an early conditional offer. For some Aspire programs you can gain an adjusted Aspire ATAR, or even a La Trobe Entrance Score - which acts as an alternative to your ATAR.

We have multiple streams to choose from, so if you've given back to your community, achieved good results in Year 11 or taken extra university studies, you can secure a place in your preferred course before you complete Year 12.

Need help with your application? Call us on 1300 135 056, email [email protected], or attend an Aspire Webinar where we will go through the application process, the benefits of the program and what makes a successful application.
