La Trobe's main campus, the Melbourne (Bundoora) campus, is situated in magnificent parklands, only 8 miles from the city centre in Melbourne, Victoria. It is one of the most attractive university campuses in Australia, covering 200 hectares of parks and bush land setting with its own waterways and wildlife sanctuary. A convenient public transportation system links the campus to downtown Melbourne.
With over 3.5 million people, Melbourne is Australia's second largest city and is widely known as the country's cultural, shopping, and sporting capital. It boasts a lively and cosmopolitan pulse, hosting international film, arts, and comedy festivals, as well as countless street and community festivals, all of which reflect the city's cultural diversity. The city is also home to Aussie Rules Football and offers major international sporting events, such as the Australian Tennis Open, the Melbourne Cup, and the Formula One Grand Prix.
Victoria offers magnificent coastlines (including the famous Great Ocean Road and Twelve Apostles), legendary surfing beaches, snowfields, rainforests, beautiful national parks, and large wine regions. Sydney is only a short flight away.

programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.
programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.
