In 2018 St Ann’s College awarded 62 medals to students who achieved more Distinctions than any other grade.
Three of our top scholarship winners earned High Distinctions in all eight of their subjects.
To ensure St Ann’s students reach their full academic potential, the College Principal and 10 Residential Tutors monitor academic progress through a bi-annual personal interview with every student.
The College employs more than 50 Academic Tutors. These tutors are ready and willing to help students in any subject area at any time.
Academic Tutors provide assistance in over 50 subjects. Their tuition is provided free and may be requested by anyone.
In our experience, tutoring is mostly needed by first-year students, who are typically making the transition from school to independent university study. However, everyone is encouraged to seek help if or when it is needed.
Academic Tutors are selected from among senior students in College who have studied subjects at a tertiary level. They are paid by the College, so it’s a good way for senior students to earn some extra money while they study.
In addition to the formal tutorial framework, the supportive nature of life at St Ann’s College means that senior students in any course or faculty are usually willing to help with academic questions from their fellow collegians.
PRIZES AND SCHOLARSHIPS
Continuing its founding principles, St Ann’s supports students who face hardship living in remote regional areas.
Today, a great many of our students continue to come from rural areas in South Australia and across the nation. St Ann’s continues with the tradition of offering financial support in the form of Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries. These are given annually – some on the basis of academic performance, others on a case of need, some a mix of both.
St Ann’s College has numerous academic facilities to maximise a student’s potential in their field of study.
The Kennedy Brooks Enterprise Deck is a new, open-plan, light-filled learning space, where students can work collaboratively and with tutors. It is equipped with multiple audio-visual and online facilities.
