Processing time

The admission process can take up to 10 working days (provided that you have submitted a complete application).

Key dates and deadlines

Campion College has one intake per year for Honours students.

The 2023 intake is as follows:

  • Semester 1 begins Monday 27 February 2023

There are no specific deadlines for applying and enrolling to commence study in a given semester. However:

  • Your enrolment must be complete before the census date of the semester in which you are commencing study

Applicants need not wait to complete their current education in order to start an application i.e. you are welcome to apply before you receive your university transcript.
