Academic Tutorials

Our extensive academic tutorial program provides free weekly tutorials for university units, with effective, unit-specific help giving you the tools to excel. We also provide dedicated tutors for general study skills.

Professional Mentoring

With our vast alumni network, we can connect you with a Georgian mentor for career advice, help forming networks and potentially gain valuable professional experience while studying.

Fireside Chats

Our 'Fireside Chats' are informal Q&A sessions with leaders in their respective fields, giving you the chance to obtain unique perspectives on academia, industry, government, and the wider community.

'Practice of...' Dinners

'Practice of...' Dinners are aimed at students studying a specific field. Guests who are professionals in their field are invited to come speak to the students and pass on some of their knowledge.

Formal Dinners

Regular Formal Dinners are held in the Dining Hall and include a three course meal, musical entertainment and the opportunity to hear from extraordinary guest speakers. Past guests have included former Prime Ministers and other Ministers, Nobel Prize winners, CEOs and UN ambassadors.

 

Beginners Classes

Interested in learning something new? Each semester we run a range of beginners' classes, with subjects as diverse as piano, photography, public speaking and foreign languages.

 

Social Events

It's important to balance work with fun, and our College calendar is packed with a huge range of social events. For example:

  • Regular games and movie nights
  • Weekly clubs such as Art Club and Book Club
  • Year group and floor group events
  • Whiskey, beer, cheese and chocolate tastings
  • 'Night at the Museum' cocktail evenings and museum tours
  • International food and culture nights
  • Most importantly, communal Game of Thrones viewings

Parties

Yes, there are parties. Whether you're costuming-up for a theme, going out for some cocktails, staying in for some cocktails, winning a quiz night, role-playing a murder mystery, cheering at Battle of the Bands or the Melbourne Cup, or beating the entire College at Mario Kart, we'll make sure you have a fun, safe and inclusive time.

The Ball

One of our annual highlights is the St George's College Ball. In previous years the College Quadrangle has been transformed into a beautiful Japanese scene, an Arabian night and a Spanish sunset. The only question remaining is what will this year be like?

 
 

Music

If music is your passion then we're the college for you! We offer a range of performance opportunities within the College and or at inter-college competitions, and we also provide music lessons and tutoring where you can learn a new skill or advance your current knowledge.

Performances

We put on a variety of resident arts nights each semester, whether you want to sing, play, dance, act, or tell some terrible jokes. Highlights include Folk Night, Rooftop Acoustic concerts, and Classics Dinners.

College Groups

The Mockingbirds and Newby Blues are our barbershop vocal groups for female and male singers. Both perform regularly around Perth and interstate, and it's a great way to get involved in music!
