The La Trobe University Student Association is pleased to provide on-going, one-to-one student support in times of financial need. We understand the problems you may face; insufficient income and stress trying to cover expenses while studying.
Financial capability refers to building the skills, resources and confidence required for students to become self-determined and sustainable. These skills and resources will hopefully equip students to overcome financial pressures, continue study and flourish in the future.
