International Students

We welcome international students to our residential community, wholeheartedly.

Almost a quarter of Sancta students are international students and we endeavour to be a home away from home for students from all parts of the world. Our aim is for every student to immerse themselves fully in Australian and College culture.

International applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as they are offered a place at university. Exchange and study abroad students are welcome.


2017 exchange student, Belgian Nina Colpaert, wrote of her time at Sancta: 

“Sancta is the perfect place for adding an extra dimension to an exchange experience. Meeting locals and other internationals is wonderful, especially in the context of a college. I also believe that Sancta offers more stability and warmth then would some other residencies. Feeling at home is so important when on an exchange and I felt that Sancta and its students offer all the opportunities to create your own new home.”
