What happens after that?

Once we have received your PART 2 of your application, 2 Referee Forms, and your application fee, we can arrange an interview for you with the Principal of the College. We prefer interviews to be in person or via Skype. Appointments must be made for interviews. Please don’t just turn up or call in.

After a successful interview, you may be given a conditional offer of a place at Grace College as resident. Conditional offers are not confirmed until we we know that you have accepted an offer of a university place. Let us know as soon as you receive and accept your place at university, so that we can confirm your place as a resident of Grace College!

Please Note

Selection and admission of residents to the College is always at the discretion of the Principal and the College Council.

Once you are accepted as a Grace College resident, continuing residency is dependent on your:

  • demonstrated commitment to and involvement in the College community;
  • maintenance of a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 4.0 (Pass) in all semesters
    while a resident of the College; and
  • continuing in full-time study.

We look forward to being able to welcome you
to the College community!

If you’re visiting Brisbane, remember to ask us for a College tour!
