E12 on campus accommodation at Sydney

Moving out and starting university can be daunting, which is why living on campus at college (with full board, pastoral care and academic assistance) can make the transition much easier. There are eight colleges at the University of Sydney, each with their own culture and atmosphere:

  • Mandelbaum
  • International House
  • St. Paul’s College
  • Sancta Sophia College
  • St. John’s College
  • St. Andrew’s College
  • Wesley College
  • Women’s College

For more information about the colleges, visit our Student colleges page

This year, the colleges at the University of Sydney have made it easier for E12 students to apply. Some of the colleges have waived application fees for E12 candidates whilst others have specific and generous scholarships for successful E12 students. All of the University of Sydney colleges have scholarships and financial support programs in place for eligible students and are willing to work flexibly with applicants.

Application deadlines vary between colleges, but most close in early December.

It is very important that you advise the colleges in your application (or via a separate email) that you are an E12 student.

Thank you for your support in the E12 scheme. E12 conditional offers will be released in October 2013, before the HSC exams commence.

Our 2013 Early Offer Year 12 (E12) scheme makes your path to uni easier, even before the HSC exams start.

If you apply successfully, we will hold a place at the University of Sydney for you. As long as you meet some conditions, such as the E12 ATAR cut-offs (which are lower than standard ATARs) and the HSC subject bands for your preferred course, you’ll have a definite place when results come out.

The scheme has some other great benefits too. You will also receive a $5000 scholarship, an Apple iPad and lots of support to help you get started at uni.

There are 26 courses you can apply for through E12, giving you lots of options. They cover engineering, health sciences, nursing, arts, law, agriculture, design computing, and architecture.
