Applications are welcome from undergraduate and postgraduate students from all backgrounds and beliefs who intend to study at University in Sydney. Most of Sancta residents study at the University of Sydney, but students attending the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), the University of Notre Dame, Australian Catholic University (ACU) and others are welcome to apply. We welcome applications from international students (including Study Abroad and Exchange students).
The College accepts applications at any time throughout the year and these can be made online. If you are considering taking a year off after completing high school, we advise you to send your application as early as possible so that an interview can be arranged for your proposed entrance to the College in the relevant year.
Once the application has been received online and reviewed, applicants are called for a personal interview with the Principal or Vice Principal at the College or by phone or skype interview for those who cannot attend in person (ie interstate or international students).
Choosing where to live is a very big decision for those doing their first undergraduate degree and even for those contemplating further postgraduate study. We invite all students to visit the College and experience the atmosphere and people, to view our accommodation, Dining Hall, Common Rooms, library, computer lab, music practise rooms as well as enjoy our quadrangle, gardens and facilities.
