College Life

Becoming part of the Emmanuel community will make an enormous difference to your life. You will form friendships at Emmanuel that will continue through the years and last a lifetime. College life is community life; you share accommodation and facilities, meals and study time, good times and interesting experiences. And there will always be someone around to talk to, to ask for advice or help.

Living a College life, you will learn how important it is to show respect for all members of the Emmanuel community, support your friends and peers, and contribute. Emmanuel prides itself on possessing a great team spirit, a strong camaraderie among students, and a solid set of values shared by all.

College tours for prospective students and their families are by appointment. To book, please email the Administration Officer.

We look forward to welcoming you to College life.
