Join the largest postgraduate community on-campus
Applications to live at Sancta in 2022 are being accepted now from male and female postgraduate and honours students. In response to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on household economies, we have removed our application fee to enable postgraduate and honours students to begin their applications to live at Sancta with confidence.
Professionals in Residence
Sancta’s Professionals-in-Residence program is a key initiative of Sancta’s long-term aim – to be a hub for the world’s brightest scholars and professionals to live and learn together. Professionals-in-Residence brings professionals in their early years of practice or research into our community of university scholars. This builds upon our culture of knowledge-sharing and peer support, whilst adding a deeper layer of experience to the community. Each year, up to 20 working professionals will call Sancta’s Graduate House “home”.
