Since its inception in 1967, Rabelais has been the only publication at La Trobe University to be created by and for students. The publication is not for profit, and is distributed for free and circulated throughout La Trobe University’s 6 campuses, reaching over 36,000 students across Victoria, which include domestic, international, graduate, and undergraduate students, as well as university staff members. With 20 distribution points across the Melbourne-Bundoora campus alone, Rabelais offers quality content and direct contact for your brand. This vibrant publication led by students promotes audience driven content that is relevant and exciting to a wide student and staff population with diverse views and backgrounds.

In addition to producing a minimum of 6 printed editions throughout the year (1000 copies per edition; 6 editions), Rabelais also maintains an active web presence and provides its audience with an online magazine version, greatly increasing readership.

Key Statistics:
• Direct access to a student population of approximately 36,000 students across Victoria, ranging from undergraduate, postgraduate, international and domestic students.
• Average readership is between 18 and 25 years old, allowing advertisements to target an audience of young and active consumers.
• Rabelais is the only Victorian student publication that has a reach across all of Victoria, serving campuses in Bendigo, Shepparton, Albury-Wodonga, Mildura, Melbourne (Bundoora), and the CBD. This will give advertisers a large youth market across the city, suburbs and regional areas of Victoria.
