Life at Grace

Life at Grace .

Academics .

At Grace, we recognise that success and achievement can look different to everyone.

For this reason, we work with you to help you achieve your individual academic goals and realise your full potential.

Success beyond your GPA .

We foster an environment of encouragement for our students, helping them to strive for excellence and recognising that success at university goes far beyond a GPA. At Grace, you’ll have a well-rounded approach to university life, including active community involvement, pursuit of co-curriculars and passions, and service through leadership.

An academic advantage .

As a Gracie, you’ll find all the support you need when it comes to academic life. Regular tutorials are run by the college during semester, giving you an edge in class and supplementing your on-campus learning with extra support.

You’ll also benefit from living in a community of your peers – whether it’s a study-buddy for exams, a listening ear to bounce ideas off, or someone to understand the ups and downs of university life.

Your college truly becomes an invaluable part of your support network, supporting you through challenges, and cheering on your success.

Tailored spaces for every study style .

Whether you prefer to study solo or with other students, Grace offers many distraction-free, serene places to set up for study sessions.

  • Recreation rooms which double as study nooks within your residence building
  • A small group meeting space fitted out with facilities for scanning and printing
  • Meeting rooms and spaces with whiteboards, cork boards and projectors for group brainstorming sessions
  • Beautiful serene gardens for those who like to study in nature
  • Dedicated music practice rooms, equipped with pianos and full drum kit
