What happens next?

You will receive acknowledgment from us confirming the receipt of your application, after which we will organise an interview with the Principal, Vice-Principal or Director of Studies. Interviews generally take place between August and November. If you are applying from overseas or interstate, your interview can be conducted via Skype or telephone if you wish.

Typically, your application will be held until University offers, after which time you may be offered a College place. In occasional circumstances, the College may be able to 'pre-offer' a place which is conditional upon accepting your University offer.

Please note that if you have not been successful in gaining a place at the University of Melbourne, RMIT University, or Monash Pharmacy, your application will be considered inactive by the College. You must let Janet Clarke Hall know if:

  • you change your University preference
  • you are deferring, or
  • if any other situation arises which affects your application.
