About Us

Founded in 1967, Rabelais is the largest student publication at La Trobe University, and one of the largest student magazines in Victoria. Since it’s inception, it is the only publication at La Trobe to be created for and by students. As a non-for-profit, Rabelais is distributed free of charge and circulated across the six Victorian campuses, reaching over 36,000 students across the state. The publication includes domestic, international, postgraduate and undergraduate students, as well as over 3000 academic staff members.

Rabelais offers quality content and direct student contact for brands, and prioritises content that is relevant and exciting to the broad range of university students and staff with diverse backgrounds and views. In addition to the six physical editions being published in 2019, there is also a large online presence of the magazine across the major social media platforms.
