La trobe is a very resourceful and excellent university with great educational value.
Tips: The studies are very tough. So please focus a lot on getting the best of your education along with working and paying for yourself. Also, please find your community within the university and talk to counsellors in case you face any hurdles they will help.
Likes (Safety): The campus, residence areas and transportation are all very safe, at all times. Never felt unsafe anywhere. I have travelled even at late night and everywhere is safe. Police are very vigilant at the station and patrolling. There is no safety issue as such in Melbourne.
Dislikes (Part time work): Not many on campus work options. Off campus opportunities vary from person to person depending on the skill they have. Usually retail, food business, labour and casual work are available. Also, contact work is available along with option to work by yourself if you have a business or service to offer.

My university is affordable, welcoming with many opportunities for international students.
Tips: The major shift that I experienced was the variation of study patterns and expectations of the teachers. It took me some time to delve into their way of study. I availed the Vice-chancellor 100% scholarship that is applied to the entire academic field of my course. I got that by submitting my resume and a video testimonial. Very satisfied with my overall experience here.
Likes (Public transportation): The campus is very well connected with the public transport. There are several bus stop on the campus that takes you to the nearest train station or even the city and other locations as well. During the semester, free glider service is also run by the university that drops off at certain locations. Public transport is pretty affordable, costing around $10 for a day of travel.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): The chances of me getting a PR are low. Because the course that I've select does not fall in the PR course list and the campus location is not regional which makes it even more difficult to get the points required for PR. If given a chance and good job opportunities, I might consider getting a PR.

Academically oriented university with excellent faculty.
Tips: Students should always check for the subjects of their interest that the university is providing or not. If one is hard working they they don't need to worry about jobs. There are internship opportunities available but you need to stand out from the crowd to get that. After reaching here and before coming, talk to senior students and connect with them as you will get plenty of information about the university. And networking is helpful later on.

La trobe university is very good overall as compared to other universities in Melbourne.
Tips: I did not find any cultural shift and it feels like I am in my own country. I got 20% of scholarship and it's very helpful for me based on my previous grades and work experience. I was fully satisfied with the course structure of the university, and Melbourne City is lively. Australia is a good country to study.
Likes (Safety): Studying and enjoying both are essential for a student. There is a recreational activity every Tuesday which involves fun activities along with an educational theme. You can participate in these activities based on your own interest. There are a number of clubs presently running here at the university from technical to social groups.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Everyone is helpful and you will get support from teachers. Practical based learning and creative lab environment for the students. Library facilities are good and you will find numerous methods of study and relaxation. In short everything is good at la trobe university.
