Application Process

The application process consists of four simple steps – prepare, apply, interview and outcome. Explore the application guide for more information.

Step 1: Prepare

For your application to be accepted, you will be required to provide the following supporting documentation:

  • A profile photo (headshot for identification) in either JPEG or PNG.
  • Your most recent school report [PDF]. If you are currently in Year 12, this can be your Year 11 report (if you are applying as a school student)
  • Transcripts from any university study you have undertaken, if any [PDF] (if you are applying as a university student)
  • A character reference [download template] [PDF]. Examples of acceptable referees are a School Principal, School Deputy / Vice Principal, School Careers Advisor, School Counsellor or School Teacher.

We suggest you arrange your reference and compile the required documents in advance to complete the application process quickly.

Step 2: Apply

Apply online, pay the non-refundable application fee of $50 and schedule your interview.

Step 3: Interview

This is your opportunity to get a feel for the College and to ask as many questions. Interviews can be held in person at the College or via Zoom.

Step 4: Outcome

You may receive a conditional offer or be placed on the waiting list. Offers may be deferred.

Explore the application guide for more information.

To apply for a scholarship, you must do so separately via the Scholarship Application Form before the deadline.

Securing Your Place

If you are made an offer of residency, an Accommodation Bond of $1000 is paid in two instalments to secure your place:

  • Conditional Offer deposit of $500. It is not refundable if you do not commence residency for any reason.
  • Unconditional Offer deposit of $500. It is not refundable if you do not commence residency for any reason.

For students who commence residency, these two deposits amount to your full Accommodation Bond, which is refundable at the end of the residency period if all requirements of the Residency Agreement and Conditions of Residency have been met.


Mannix welcomes applications from students who intend to or are currently enrolled in a full-time, on-campus degree at Bachelor level or higher at Monash University. You can apply before you have received a study offer from the University, but you will need to provide evidence of your enrolment at Monash University before moving in and signing a residency agreement.

Selection Criteria

Mannix has a merit-based selection process with consideration given to the following:

  • Suitability for college life
  • Academic talent and potential, and a demonstrated commitment and capability to succeed at university
  • Personal character and values
  • Leadership experiences and potential
  • Community service
  • Involvement in cultural, sporting, artistic and other co-curricular activities
“As soon as I stepped foot into Mannix College I felt at home.

I chose to become a resident at Mannix College as I wanted to experience college life where I can dine, study and get to know other students from all parts of the world! I love getting involved with the various opportunities of college life such as functions, sport, the College Play, volunteering and much more.

I love how friendly all the residents are that you can pop into anyone’s room for a chat!

Mannix has also enhanced my studies through its Tutorial Program, where I have the opportunity to gain further support with my studies.

In addition, the convenience of Mannix being located across the road from Monash University means there is no excuse to miss my lectures!”
