ACT students may apply for an out of area college. In doing so it is important to give a full rationale for the request ensuring that your claims address the criteria for out of area placement. These are outlined in the enrolment procedures and are as follows:
NSW students may apply for an ACT college placement following the online enrolment process. Where demand for places at a particular school or college exceeds available places, applications from NSW students for placement in these centres will not be considered. In these circumstances NSW students will be offered a place in another ACT school or college
NSW students are able to use the Review and Appeals processes like all ACT students who may be unhappy with their college placement.
