About the course
This degree - one of only three Victorian undergraduate planning courses accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia - gives you the opportunity to shape communities and establish peaceful, productive and environmentally sustainable places to live. Youll explore a range of ways to improve how we live and interact, from policy planning and local politics to urban design and transport. Articulating a vision and promoting the benefits of change are important to effective planning. Thats why we focus on communication skills like mediation, negotiation and community relations as part of this course. Another core aspect of your studies will be travelling to communities to learn and evaluate what works and what doesnt. Our students participate in field trips to a range of locations, from country towns in rural Victoria to metropolitan cities in Asia and Europe. Throughout your degree, youll take part in hands-on projects, including semester-long activities and short visits to communities. This type of experience goes beyond a work placement or research project, giving you the chance to make a genuine difference within a community. Just one example is the bicycle path from our Bendigo Campus to the Bendigo Hospital - a student-led project that was commended in the Outstanding Tertiary Student Project Borrie Prize, which celebrates practice, leadership and achievement in planning.

Bendigo campus is in Flora Hill, an easy 3km drive or bike ride from the Bendigo CBD. We are located next to Greater Bendigo National Park, which means even though we’re close to all the action of the city, you’ll often see kangaroos on campus! The campus became an integral part of La Trobe in 1991, however the university and its antecedent organisations have been providing tertiary education in Bendigo for nearly 150 years. The campus features purpose-built departments for business, arts, education, outdoor education, health, science and engineering.
