BSSC students who volunteer in the community have a great opportunity to secure a place at La Trobe University before ATAR scores are released. It’s time to apply.

The assessment criteria include your ability to demonstrate academic capability for your selected courses and to explain the impact of your volunteer contributions to the community.  Volunteer contributions can be through:

  • Community service or community group activities eg. CFA
  • Religious/cultural group activities
  • Participating in school leadership or social justice groups
  • Being involved in sport, the performing arts or charity fund-raising group activities

The benefits of being in the Aspire program are many and include:

  • An enrichment program designed to support you through the final stages of high school and prepare you for life at La Trobe. Includes VCE revision lectures to be held in the September school holidays.
  • Mentoring from a La Trobe student ambassador.
  • Access to the La Trobe Library.
  • Priority access to LaTrobe Uni  accommodation services.

Offers will be made to successful applicants as early as September and are conditional based on the student meeting the minimum ATAR score and standard course prerequisites eg. a study score of at least 30 in English.

Students will need to apply to the Aspire program directly to La Trobe University, along with their usual VTAC application. Apply early to avoid the rush.

Students are able to apply for all courses across all campuses of La Trobe University.

La Trobe representatives will visit BSSC for an information session on Thursday 14 July at lunchtime.  Look out for more information on Compass and in eNews.

The Aspire early admissions program will be open for applications between 1 June and 31 August for students who plan to commence studying at La Trobe University in 2017.
