Selection criteria

A primary consideration for admission is academic merit, but the confidential reference provided by a school is another important factor in the selection process.

The College seeks students who are:

  • from a wide variety of backgrounds;
  • keen to participate in College life;
  • excited to engage with others in the community;
  • committed to applying themselves to their course of study. 

Preference may be given to those who have proved themselves proficient in cultural areas, in the sporting arena, in leadership roles and in their contribution to the community at large. Salmond values people who value others, and who contribute to and enjoy community life.

An applicant will be judged solely on the information submitted by applicants and information provided by referees, so when applying, we encourage you to include as much relevant information as possible.

The Application Process

Over August and September, the University's Accommodation Office accepts applications for the following year. If you put Salmond College down as your first-choice College, your forms will be forwarded to us for consideration. The first round of offers will be made in early October. If your application is unsuccessful it will be returned to the Accommodation Office where it will be referred quickly to your second-choice College, and so on.
