Location and Parking

Parking location and permit arrangements have changed this year.  When you receive your allocation confirmation, you will be asked if you require a parking permit and these will be sent out to those who need them.  See Interviewer Confirmation flyer for further information and a campus map showing the locations.

Important: The Faculty will not take any responsibility for interviewers parking incorrectly and receiving a parking fine.  The parking on the campus is very strict and you must park in the designated areas.


As a returning interviewer, you can log in to the Interviewer Database and nominate the times that you are available to participate as an interviewer during the dates indicated.  These dates will be available in the system by mid-October 2019.

Other important information

We very much appreciate the support of volunteers and realise that this task could not be undertaken without you. However, it is extremely important that once you have committed to a date and time and have had this confirmed, that you make note of this commitment and attend your scheduled day. Please do not nominate a date / time if you have any doubt that you may not be able to attend for any reason.

SMS Communications

We will be sending you an email confirmation of your scheduled days and times once we have finalised all interviewer allocations. We ask you to revisit the interviewer database to confirm your scheduled dates and times. If you do not return to the interviewer database to acknowledge that you have noted your scheduled dates and times, we will contact you again.

A further SMS reminder will be sent to interviewers 24-48 hours prior to their interview time. When you receive this SMS, please respond so we can be assured that you are aware of your required attendance at your scheduled date and time.

Please follow the instructions to confirm your attendance. We undertake this process at a very busy time for the Admission's team and this is a quick and easy way to confirm attendance.

If at this point you realise you are not available for your scheduled time we request you advise us immediately by telephone  (9905 0609).

If you do not respond to the SMS reminder and we cannot contact you any other way, we will allocate a replacement interviewer to your time slot.
