Higher education:

If you are studying on campus with La Trobe University in a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) you may be able to replace some of your on campus subjects with online subjects from the Bachelor of Food and Nutrition (BFN), provided you receive permission from your current Course Coordinator and the Coordinator of the BFN.

The BFN subjects are based on health sciences subjects taught on campus (including the core first year subjects), but some subject structures and practical components differ from the on campus health science subjects.

Before your current Course Coordinator approves your request to take any BFN subject online they will need to consider:

  • your study history and current study load
  • your intended academic progression (future study)
  • your career goals
  • any associated accreditation

to confirm that the subjects are appropriate to replace your on campus subject/s and that they can be credited to your existing degree.

How to Apply:

  1. Fill in the La Trobe application form for outbound cross institutional study Application-for-Cross-Institutional-Enrolment_Outbound referring to the Guide to Completing the Cross-Institutional – Outbound application form
  2. Seek approval from your current Course Coordinator and ask them to sign the form as per Guide to Completing the Cross-Institutional – Outbound application form.
  3. Go to the ASK La Trobe Ask A Question form and attach a scan or photo of your signed CIE Outbound form indicating in the description that you are applying to study a subject from the Bachelor of Food and Nutrition online through OUA.
  4. The Online Student Support team will ask the Course Coordinator of the Bachelor of Food and Nutrition to approve your CIE Outbound form
  5. The Online Student Support team will contact you via La Trobe email and let you know the result of the BFN Coordinator’s review and (provided your application was approved) will attach a copy of the signed form.
  6. Go to the ‘La Trobe CSP On‐Campus to Online’ course on the OUA website to apply (this will ensure that you can utilise your existing CSP funding).
