How to Apply

  • Applications for Semester 1, 2022 entry now open!

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


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.

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

For undergraduate students applying for a residential undergraduate place in Semester 1 2022, offers will be made in three rounds:

  • December Round: We will be releasing our main round of offers on 9 December 2021. All students who applied prior to 2 December will be considered in this round.
  • January Round: A second round of offers will be released on 13 January 2022. This round will include students who were not interviewed by 2 December and/or whose application was received by 15 December.
  • February Round: A third round of offers will be released on 8 February.  This round will include students who applied from 16 December to 27 January.

Students who are eligible but do not receive an offer in their first round will also be considered in later round(s). Please don’t be disappointed if you don’t receive an offer straight away as there may be more offers to come.

All undergraduate offers will be conditional until VTAC offers are released in January.  Once you send us a copy of your University of Melbourne offer, your Ormond offer will become unconditional.

For students applying for a residential graduate place, offers are made on a rolling basis.

For students applying for a non residential place, offers will be made in mid-January.

All offers are made via email so please make sure you check your email regularly
