How to Apply

Semester 2, 2023 and Semester 1, 2024 applications: We are currently undergoing maintenance on our application system.  Applications will reopen by no later than 1st April 2023.

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.

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