THE halls and lecture rooms at La Trobe University Shepparton Campus have been filled with new students, as the 2018 year officially kicked off last week, bringing the total number of students at the campus to over 800.
Students will be studying a range of courses available at the local campus, including a new course that was introduced last year, Bachelor of Early Childhood and Primary Education, which has had a significant intake this year, seeing 52 students enrol.
Having completed Year 12 at Notre Dame College in 2017, new student, Paris Pellegrino was named college dux, received the highest ATAR of students across the Goulburn Valley, and is now planning on completing the Bachelor of Nursing, followed by postgraduate studies in Midwifery at La Trobe University in Shepparton.
Paris said, “I chose La Trobe University as the Shepparton campus offers my course close to home, without having to move away. I get to balance my studies with my work and still be at home.
“I’m excited to learn something new. I just love babies and I’ve been drawn to them, I think it will be a great way to live my life.”
After taking two years off to work upon completing Year 12 in Tasmania and relocating to Shepparton, Phebe Woodward is returning to study, Bachelor of Applied Science/Master of Occupational Therapy, and felt the Shepparton campus was the right place to start.
Phebe said, “I chose La Trobe University because the smaller campus made me feel comfortable in commencing my course here.
“I am most looking forward to getting into the field. I’m passionate about health and looking forward to working in the industry.”
It’s not too late to apply for tertiary study in 2018.
