International Students: General Medicine Entry

Hi! I'm an international student wanting to study medicine at Australia. Currently I'm in my first year first semester of studying pharmacy and I want to reapply to other universities for medicine (2022 entry as a first year). I was wondering if my university GPA matters if my high school scores match what the universities require from a high school graduate? Like for example if just by looking at my high school scores, isat and interview looks like I might pass, if i don't do so well in my first semester of uni right now or if I happen to fail (which I hope not happen), will that heavily affect my acceptance? Thanks in advance! I'm so happy I found this page :)

We should have a thread for this, so if we don't this has been an excellent excuse to create one! Welcome to MSO. In recent history, our international student members have been well serviced by the knowledge of BoarVessel so I've tagged them for you.

I have not checked all the med schools, only these four and the criteria for international students already in uni appear to be the same as those applying to domestic students.

UNSW : You need to achieve *both* ATAR equivalent to 96+ and uni WAM 70+, then the "best of" is used
> International Applicants | Medicine - UNSW Sydney

WSU : Either Y12 or the uni GPA so if your Y12 is sufficient you're good
> International Applicants for the MD | Western Sydney University

JMP : Based on your most recent study program so GPA only
> International applicants

Monash : Not eligible once you have commenced uni (same as for domestic students)
> Admissions requirements - International

These are for examples, you should check through the other schools when you have time. Best of luck.
