Early Entry is our early offer initiative, where we offer you the opportunity to secure your place at Mannix College before exams and University offers are released.
Early Entry is perfect for you, if you are:
- in Year 12 in 2020; and
- completing the VCE, an interstate equivalent, or the International Baccalaureate (IB) at an Australian high school; and
- are applying to undertake your first year of study at Monash University in 2021, in a course included in Monash’s January Round of offer
Acceptance is contingent upon you receiving an offer to study at Monash University in 2021, in the 2021 January Round offers and enrolling on a full-time basis at the Clayton, Caulfield or Peninsula campus. If you don’t meet the above criteria, unfortunately you are not eligible to apply for Early Entry. However, you can still apply for standard admission. Find our more here.
Applications are completed in our Accommodation Portal.
You won’t be able to edit your application in the Portal after you’ve submitted it. To make any changes to your application, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to the closing date.
Please note: to ensure we’re able to communicate with you after you leave high school, please register with an email address other than your school address. As all communication with you is via email, your email address should be one you check regularly.
The application consists of two parts – a written component, and an interview with the Principal (conducted via Zoom in 2020).
We’ll also ask you to pay a $50 non-refundable application fee, upload a photo of yourself, and book a date and time for your interview, all within the Portal.
So you can prepare, here are the questions we will ask you in the written component.
Mannix aspires to be more than just a place to stay; our mission is to inspire in our residents a desire and capacity to make a difference in the world.
What has influenced your decision to apply to live at Mannix?
Hint: We’d love to know what excites you about the prospect of living here, how you think you can contribute to the community, and how living at Mannix can benefit you.
Our ethos drives everything we do at Mannix, as does our strong sense of community.
Describe a time you’ve been community-minded in your actions
Hint: Tell us about any community service projects you’ve been involved in, where you’ve demonstrated your willingness to do something for the community without expecting anything in return.
Mannix is committed to helping you achieve your academic goals.
What has helped you succeed academically so far?
Hint: We’d love to know any specific study strategies you use, and how you avoid distractions.
Are there any other personal achievements or accomplishments you’d like to tell us about?
Hint: We’d love to hear about any leadership roles you may have undertaken, times when you’ve succeeded at achieving a specific goal, or where you’ve felt particularly proud of something you’ve achieved.
We ask you to be concise with your answers, and limit them to 500 characters each. You will be able to elaborate at the interview stage.
Make sure you’re familiar with the College Ethos, as the Principal will be interested in your thoughts on this at the interview. The Principal may also ask you to elaborate on your written answers.
Interview will be scheduled for 30 minutes, but will realistically only take 15 minutes. We allow the extra time to answer any questions you may have.
We’re looking for applicants who we feel will thrive in a residential community, who are willing to contribute positively to the College culture while maintaining a commitment to our ethos, and to academic excellence.
The date you submit your application doesn’t have any bearing on the outcome. So, take your time – just make sure you submit by the closing date (4 October 2020).
We’ll send you an email between 20 – 21 October 2020
Don’t worry! With only a limited number of Early Offer places available, it’s simply not possible to make offers to everyone. If you don’t receive an early offer we will consider your application in our January and February offer rounds.
