Associates Program

Sancta offers an Associates Program for non-residents.

Sancta’s Associate members live outside the College, either at home or in alternative accommodation. The Associates program allows members to still call Sancta ‘home’ during their days at university and benefit from many aspects of Sancta’s rich College life.  

A Sancta Associate can share in meals, access the College tutorial and mentoring program, use the common areas for study and importantly develop a wide, supportive social circle and build professional connections with the Sancta alumni network. Apply here.
