Why choose St John’s?
St John’s College is far more than just accommodation, it is a community which nurtures the academic potential and personal wellbeing of every student; a dynamic community founded in the tradition of Catholic commitment to university education. We recognise that personal well-being of students is a cornerstone of their academic achievement and and their contribution to the wider community.
The extensive tutorial program, which includes the chosen subjects of every student, is a central pillar of academic support at St John’s. Guest speakers, domestic and international, from such diverse areas as astronomy, politics, business, law and psychology, further the students’ intellectual and spiritual development.
Promoting physical and mental health through multiple avenues, senior college officers work closely with elected student leaders and other senior students to ensure a vital source of practical support.
St John’s College Non-residential Program is for students who live at home or in alternative accommodation, but have full access to the academic support program, the social life of the College and are included in the provision of three meals a day. In this way Non-residential students enjoy the advantage of a leading co-ed collegiate experience.
St John’s College offers a generous range of Scholarships each year to assist promising students. See our FAQ page for more information. Click here to read about current students’ experiences at St John’s.
