How to accept your offer

Got an acceptance letter? Congratulations! You are on your way to Trinity College.

Now that you have been offered a place in the Trinity College Foundation Program, you must accept your offer. Here is what you have to do.

Step 1. Accept your offer

You'll receive a letter of offer via email that outlines:

  • the intake you've been accepted into
  • fees payable
  • your course commencement date
  • relevant policies, including our refund policy.

To confirm your place at Trinity College, you'll need to:

  • meet any conditions stated in the letter of offer
  • sign and date the acceptance page (this is a legally binding contract under the laws of the Commonwealth of Australia)
  • pay the first fee instalment shown on your letter of offer.

Note: You need to accept your offer at least four weeks before the study commencement date.

Step 2. Pay your first fee instalment

Payment of fees (in Australian dollars) can be made via:

  • bank draft
  • credit card – parents should contact their bank before they return this Credit Card Authorisation Form to ensure a large sum will be released in one transaction
  • telegraphic transfer/direct deposit.

Payment details

All initial deposits should be made out to:

Bank: National Australia Bank
Branch: Ground Level, 330 Collins Street, Melbourne, Australia
Account name: Trinity College – Initial Pre-paid Fees Account
Branch number (BSB): 083 004 
Account number: 137 647 681
Swift Code: NATAAU 3303M

All payments must include the student’s full name and their Foundation Studies ID number (shown on the bottom left-hand corner of your letter of offer) on the transfer document.

Students must advise the Trinity College Registrations Office immediately that the transfer has been completed and provide the following details: 

  • a copy of the transfer receipt 
  • full name of the student 
  • student TCFS ID number 
  • the amount paid in Australian dollars 
  • date of transfer 
  • name and branch of the bank that funds have transferred from.

Please note that any subsequent payments owing post commencement at Trinity should be transferred to:

Bank: National Australia Bank
Branch: The University of Melbourne Parkville
Account name: Trinity College General Account
Branch number (BSB): 083 170
Account number: 515 617 691
Swift Code: NATAAU 3303 M

A $300 late fee will be applied for any fee payments received after the relevant due date.

Note: If you pay your first fee instalment and then decide to withdraw from the course, you'll need to notify Trinity College. Applications for fee refunds are considered individually.

Review our refund policy for more information.

Step 3. Arrange accommodation

There are several accommodation options for Trinity College students. 

If you're under 18 years of age, you'll need to have your accommodation choice approved by Trinity College before you can apply for a student visa. Once approved, Trinity College will issue a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare (CAAW).

Step 4. Have your enrolment confirmed

Once we have received your payment and checked that you meet the Department of Home Affairs guidelines, we will confirm your enrolment by issuing an electronic confirmation of enrolment (e-COE).

Step 5. Secure your visa

To apply for a student visa, you need to present the e-COE, CAAW letter (if you are under 18) and other required documents to an Australian diplomatic mission, either in person or online. If you apply to Trinity College via an overseas representative, they will assist you with your student visa application.

 

If your application was not successful

If your application to Trinity College was not successful, this could have been for a number of reasons, including:

  • your application information was incomplete or deemed fraudulent
  • the admissions team believed you didn't meet the necessary entry requirements
  • the admission entry requirements changed.

If you're unsuccessful in gaining an offer of entry to the Foundation Studies program, you can appeal the decision by contacting the Admissions Office, the relevant Foundation Studies Regional Manager, or the Associate Dean – Marketing and Admission, with supporting documentation.
