The Application Process Living In College Part (2)Posted by at January 31, 2012 in Collage
When selectors are reviewing applicants, there are a number of criteria that have to be met. Examples include the geographic isolation of an applicant (meaning how much you need the place), how good your academic record is, and how much you are going to be able to contribute to the college (for example, leadership skills).
You usually find out if you have been offered a spot at college after you have got into the course at their particular university. The majority of the offers come out towards the end of January, to give the people who didn’t get into college enough time to organize some kind of off-campus accommodation before uni starts. The type of college accommodation that you are offered is usually based on one full year.
You need to make sure that you accept your offer in the specific way that it states, and by the closing date of acceptance, or you risk losing your place. In some cases you may have to send off a deposit, or enrolment fees, with your acceptance. My friend Liz, who is from Sydney, had her heart set on doing a music degree at the University of Melbourne.
