Online courses designed the way they should be


As you know, the pandemic has disrupted education globally. Here in Australia, we have seen education providers experiencing on-campus disruptions and rushing to offer students ‘emergency’ online learning solutions. The university sector responded promptly by providing students online alternatives to their on-campus courses.

La Trobe-Didasko had no such challenge, as our multi-award-winning courses have been crafted and perfected over several years.

Our students continued with their studies uninterrupted throughout the disruptions of 2020-21 and reassuringly, student satisfaction rates continue to reflect the investment we make in developing Australia's most awarded online courses.

From the outset, our courses are created for online delivery. And 25 years of experience allows us to integrate unique techniques in the building of content that enhance engagement and enjoyment - always coupled with gold-standard academic delivery and support.

Designed with you in mind

Our online IT courses and online business courses have been developed with your future success in mind. You may be seeking a career change or to further progress in the IT or business industry. We have consulted extensively with industry to bring you qualifications that will give you an employability edge, no matter what career outcome you’re seeking.

Our courses are highly flexible with full and part-time options as well as the ability for you to develop a weekly study plan around your other commitments.

Help when you need it most

We understand that online study can be a bit daunting, particularly if it has been some time since you were last in formal education. When you study your La Trobe Online degree, you will be fully supported throughout your studies from the moment you enrol. From our orientation program and state of the art learning content, all the way to our Career Support Centre, we’ll support you to achieve your career goal.

We have committed academic and support teams available who are eager to resolve any student enquiry. You can have as much support as you need – as often as you need it. Our aim is to reply to all student enquires within 10 minutes (during normal operating hours), and resolve within 24 hours.

I was referred to La Trobe-Didasko by a former student and found the support from both support staff and academic staff to be exceptional. I thoroughly enjoyed my coursework and found the online LMS (Learning Management System) to be well designed and easy to navigate as a first-year student.

Browse IT and business courses

At last there are award-winning online business courses and online IT courses in Australia with real flexibility. But what does this mean to you?

Full or part-time study options

You can study full or part-time with no campus attendance at all. Studying on a full-time timetable (about 30 hours per week) would complete each year of your qualification in the conventional annual timeframe. For some, this is a bit too much with full-time employment. This can result in their studies suffering.

We have a part-time option that allows you to halve the weekly study commitment. Yes, your course will take longer, but your will and desire to complete your course is always seen favourably by employers no matter which option you choose. You can change study mode should your commitments alter during your course.

Study mode Full-time Part-time
Hours per week ~30 ~15
Completion time 3 years 6 years
Academic assistance
Career assistance
Available online
Available internationally

Choose when you study

We will work with you to complete your study hours each week with your own personal study plan. We will help you honour your plan and hit your study goals. Again, should your circumstances change, so can your study plan!

Three exit points should your circumstances change

Our degree gives you the greatest of flexibility with our unique ‘nested’ qualifications. Should you choose to leave your course, for whatever reason, La Trobe’s online applied degrees can ensure that all your hard work is not in vain.

After satisfactorily completing Year one of your course, and you then choose to exit your studies, you will be awarded an applied diploma.

Similarly, after successful completion of year 2, should you exit at this point, you will be awarded an applied associate degree. And of course, an applied bachelor’s degree awaits you when you complete all three years. Please note that you will achieve one testamur only, and it will be for the highest achieved qualification.

Naturally, your biggest benefits come from completing year 3 and achieving your Bachelor degree.

Should you choose to exit after completing year 1 of your degree, you will be awarded with an applied diploma. You can add this qualification to your résumé and move forward with your career plans.

Study year 2 of your degree
Year 2

Associate degree

Successful completion and exit after year 2 will increase your chances of a higher-paying position with an applied associate degree. However, you are now well over halfway to your applied bachelor degree, so why not continue to study while staying employed?

Study year 3 of your degree
Year 3

Bachelor degree

Your applied bachelor degree greatly improves the opportunities available to you. Successfully completing the entire three years will have demonstrated your ability to stay focused to achieve a goal. With the job-ready skills and knowledge acquired from your course, employers will find you highly desirable.
