Is a business qualification right for me?
- Are you keen to begin your professional career in Business?
- Do you dream of starting your own business one day?
- Are you looking for a career which offers options across a wide range of industries, filled with challenges and offers attractive career prospects?
If you enjoy learning at your your own pace, then online learning is an ideal option. You will be ably supported by our Academic Team, who are waiting to assist you through your course every working day.
What job opportunities are there in the industry?
La Trobe University and Didasko have created an Applied Business Degree specifically to achieve what so many other degrees cannot do - provide you with a qualification with genuine employability built-in. No matter which major you chose, you will have a depth and range of skills and knowledge to put you ahead in the job market.
Where else can my qualification take me?
After completing year 1 of your Degree, you will gain the La Trobe Applied Business Diploma. After completion of Year 2, and deciding to exit the Degree, you will gain the La Trobe Associate Degree in Applied Business. And, of course, if you complete all three-years of study, you will receive the La Trobe University Bachelor of Applied Business.
How long will it take to complete the course?
You must complete year 1 of your Degree in 12 months. However, with the flexibility of online learning, you should achieve this comfortably.
Studying 25 hours per week on average (100 hours per month) should see you successfully complete your qualification within this timeframe. All assessments must be completed within the 12-month time limit.
You can, if you chose, study part-time, though this will extend the length of your course. Feel free to ask us about this option.
What do I need to do to start studying?
You only need to complete our Pre-enrolment Assessment and have a chat with a member of our Student Experience Team who will advise and guide you on the best path to help you achieve your business success.
What documentation do you require for me to enrol?
To enrol you will need to provide some personal details and documentation proving your identity, age and citizenship/residency.
Your Career Consultant will help you through the enrolment process.
What are my options for financial assistance as a Permanent Resident?
As a Permanent Resident, you are eligible for the Government’s CSP (Commonwealth Supported Place) funding. CSP is a Government grant to assist with your study. You do not have to pay this back to the Government. However, any shortfall between the CSP grant and the total course cost, must be self-funded.

Do you recognise my prior learning (advanced standing)?
Students who have studied at tertiary level elsewhere, or who have relevant studies or work experience, may be eligible for advanced standing (credit) towards a La Trobe University qualification. Advanced standing enables you to complete your Degree earlier, reduce your study load and/or take on additional qualifications. We can provide you with more details about the process for advanced standing at enrolment (advanced standing is similar to recognised prior learning).

Will I be able to talk to other students about the course and discuss any issues relating to the course I’m studying?
