On January 13, 2017, the Faculty welcomed Patricia O’Dea, La Trobe’s International Development Manager, whose main responsibility is to oversee the academic cooperation in the Southeast Asian region. The meeting covered the basic issues of potential international linkage and cooperation. They welcome both undergraduate and graduate students. One distinctive advantage for international students at La Trobe is the fact that they can be granted a five-year work permit after graduation. La Trobe is especially interested in the Faculty’s Bachelor of Arts program in Language and Culture (BALAC), deeming the program structure and courses offered are suitable for exchange potential. Located near
Melbourne, La Trobe is one of the Australian universities whose academic strength is humanities and the arts.
