Applicants must in their final year, or have completed their most recent degree to apply. The Academic Calendar in Australia differs from Schools in the United States in that it runs from January to November each year. Please keep this in mind when applying to indicate the most appropriate entry year.
Applications will be assessed on the following criteria:
A minimum MCAT score of 504 is required. Please note that a score of 504 is not a guarantee that you will receive an interview, or offer. This is a very competitive program and the final cut-off MCAT scores may be higher than 504. The MCAT must be gained in the four years preceding the year of commencement.
GPA and pre-requisites
B average in your most recently completed degree (Bachelor or Masters degree). This degree must have been completed within the ten year period preceding the proposed commencement date. If you have graduated more than ten years prior to the program start day, your degree can be 'reactivated' if you have completed the equivalent of one semester of coursework at an undergraduate level, or higher (this will be determined upon application)
If you have completed both a Bachelors degree, and a Masters degree, the GPA from your masters degree will be calculated as this is the most recent. Science courses are not weighted any higher than other courses; if you fail a course and retake it, the higher grade is not taken instead. Every grade taken as credit towards your degree will be used to calculated GPA evenly. The pre-requisites are not weighted at all, only marked as having been completed.
If you apply and have completed a Bachelors degree, but are still in progress of a Masters degree, only the Bachelors GPA will be used for admission as it is the degree that is complete at the time of application. For this reason, we require applicants to apply as a senior, and provide a semester 1 transcript that includes finalised grades.
Pre-requisites will be determined based on previously completed, or in progress academic history. If your academic history fails to meet the pre-requisites at application, the Faculty of Medicine will provide further advice and support to aid you to achieve the requirements.
Please see below for information on our Multiple Mini Interviews.
Please note applications will not be assessed on resume, extra-curricular activities, essays, or letters of recommendation. You are not required to supply these with the application, and any documents sent through will not be reviewed.
The Medical School fosters a culture of inclusivity and the provision of equivalent opportunities to access an education in medicine. Enabling effective inclusion requires a collaborative effort by an applicant and the Medical School. We ask that applicants read the Medical Deans Inclusive Medical Education Guidelines and report identified likely barriers to participation by emailing the Academic Guidance staff, firstname.lastname@example.org.
All commencing medical students are required to be fully vaccinated with a completed dosage of a vaccine approved or recognised by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). Please note, no medical exemptions will be accepted.
