From 1 April 2019, a student of the Women’s College must be enrolled in a tertiary degree at university. While the College is situated within the University of Sydney, students who wish to expand their academic, leadership and social opportunities at Women’s may be studying at any metropolitan university in Sydney.
For a student entering tertiary study for the first time, and who wishes to study at a university other than the University of Sydney, the student is required to:
have a confirmed place at The Women’s College (evidence by signed Student Residency Agreement (SRA) and payment of an Admissions Confirmation Fee); and
provide the requisite documentation to the College of their ATAR and university course offer by the first round of university offers in January within the timeframe indicated in the SRA.
