Apply to the College

Application process

Residence in the College is offered on the basis of merit and potential.

Applications for residence should be sent to the Registrar, at registrar@stpauls.edu.au, who will organise an interview. Senior staff members will meet with you. Successful applicants are usually good all-rounders, with high academic achievement (or promise), good character, excellent references, strong extracurricular involvement, a keen desire to be part of a cohesive and dynamic college community, and a real wish to do well and to contribute to society.

Ability to manage your time is also important. There is much to do in College and at University, and demands on time can be a challenge.

For all enquiries please contact the Registrar on +61 2 9550 7451 or email registrar@stpauls.edu.au.

Scholarships

Generous scholarships are available for prospective students, regardless of the time of application, to assist meritorious students to live and study at St Paul’s. Find out about the St Paul’s College scholarships including the scholarship application forms.

Students applying for scholarships are generally required to submit their scholarship application form with their application for residence in College.

We recently updated our application system. If you have an incomplete application using the old system, click here to continue that application. We currently continue to accept hard copy applications for the 2019 academic year.

Application instructions

Fill the online application form, or send in the completed PDF form with a passport photo and application fee by cheque if not paying by credit card. See Fees and charges.  Please send original passport photo and not printouts. Jpgs are also accepted (not pdfs).

Applications should be made directly to the College. St Paul’s does not share applications with other University of Sydney colleges.

Two references are required. References must be sent directly to the College by the referee. The academic reference should be from either your headmaster/school principal (for undergraduates) or a University lecturer/tutor. The personal reference should be from someone who knows you well but who can give an objective account of you, rather than a family friend – for example, a coach, boarding-house supervisor, or an academic supervisor. The College values references from those who write candidly about what makes you distinctive.

References can be emailed to registrar@stpauls.edu.au if this is more convenient than mailing them. Preferably only one reference should come from the applicant’s school.

Note: St Paul’s does not use a generic referee form.

When all information has been received and processed, the Registrar will contact you to arrange a time for your interview at St Paul’s.

Scanned documents or email attachments are accepted.
