LTU is located one hour from Melbourne on the tram. As a nursing student I had the majority of my classes in Melbourne, which meant a lot of traveling. I wanted to live on campus and applied for accommodation through La Trobes website. Living on campus allowed me to meet new people. When living together with other students it was easy to make friends and they pretty much becomes your University-family for that half a year.
Moving to another country alone is a challenge but also a great opportunity and I don’t regret it for a moment.
