Admissions at Gilson College

The process of enrolment into Gilson College requires that a prospective student meets the selection criteria. All applications will go before an Enrolments Committee where the suitability and/or readiness of the prospective student will be assessed and a written response will be forwarded to the family.

The standard process involves applying 1-2 years before the preferred entry time. The major intake years for entry to Gilson College are as follows:

* Foundation (formerly Prep)
* Year 7

Most applications for these year levels are offered in the May of the year preceding enrolment. Applications for entry at other year levels are welcome, however admission is subject to vacancies being available, as well as meeting the standard criteria for acceptance.

The College runs two Public Information evenings per year, one in March and the other in August. Please call the College at either Campus to obtain the specific dates for the next session.
