How to Apply

Ormond College is accepting applications for  Semester 1, 2021 entry. 


At Ormond we welcome applications from local and international students planning to study at the University of Melbourne including the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA).

You don’t have to wait until you have received an offer from the University of Melbourne to apply to Ormond, actually, the earlier you get your application in the better. This will give you plenty of time to organise your supporting documents and attend an interview.

Financial Assistance applications are currently closed.

If you have any questions, please contact our Admissions Manager, Kim Exell on


Step 1 – Apply to Ormond College

Applying is easy – head to the Colleges of the University of Melbourne website and complete the online application form. Put Ormond College as your first preference.

Once you submit your application, we will send you an email confirming any supporting documents we need and a link to pay the $75 application fee.

There is a slightly different process for Study Abroad and Exchange students who must submit their application directly to the University of Melbourne’s Global Mobility Office.

Step 2 – Attend an interview

All applicants to Ormond College are invited to attend an interview, either face-to-face or over Zoom video conferencing – we’ll be in touch to organise this.

Step 3 – Application outcome

Offers are made in June – July for Semester 2 and November onwards for Semester 1, however, we do make some early offers so you should check your email regularly.

Key Dates

Applications for Semester 1, 2021 entry are now open.
