The Application Process Living In CollegePosted by at January 27, 2012 in Collage
The first step is to decide on which university you are applying to, and then get an application form for the particular college that you want to get into. You need to do this as soon as possible in the year before you want to start university. College applications usually close at the end of October, long before you know whether you have made it into the course.
Step 2—Filling out the form
All applications must be submitted on the actual application form. You will be asked to supply personal details, who is going to be responsible for paying the accommodation fees, what course you are applying for and which particular on-campus college you are applying for; then there will be some short-answer questions on yourself and why you want a place. You then need to make sure you send off your application form so that it gets there before the closing date, along with the application fee, which is usually around $20.
Step 3—The interview
Once your application form has been reviewed, you will be asked to come in for an interview. These interviews usually take place around late November/early December, and enable selectors to determine whether you would fit into college and how much you want a place— in other words, whether you are suitable college material.
