Not sure if there is a similar thread (if there is, could someone merge this info to the thread) or whether this info is meant to be here, but I was cleaning my inbox and found some information regarding UTAS. This is for reference for future non stndard applicants. Entry requirements - Domestic Applicants (Australian Citizens/Permanent Residents, New Zealand Citizens) Subject Prerequisites Satisfactory Achievement results in both: · TCE Year 12 Chemistry (CHM315109 or equivalent) which must have been completed within the last 5 years. The UTAS Chemistry Foundation Unit (KRA001) is an acceptable equivalent, provided that the student is currently enrolled or has already completed the unit at the time of their application; · TCE Year 12 English Communications (ENC315109 or equivalent) or, Year 12 English Studies (ENS315109 or equivalent) or, Year 12 English Writing (ENW315109 or equivalent); Without the above prerequisite subjects applicants will not be considered for entry and should not apply for Medicine. All applicants must have successfully completed subject prerequisites, and provided evidence of such by early February of the commencement year. Academic Performance Admission for non-school leaver and tertiary applicants will be based on subject prerequisites, academic and UMAT performance, together with evidence of their capacity to complete the course successfully. Maturity, motivation and experience (including previous or continuous work in a Medicine-related field) will also be taken into consideration. ( Different universities use different percentages. At UTAS, a distinction is worth 70%. We will look at all of your results and calculate an average.) Applications for 2011 open after the second of August online. As an incomplete tertiary applicant, to be eligible, you will have to meet the following: Distinction average (70%) over 1-2 semesters of full time study (3-8 units) PLUS an ATAR of 90 or higher OR Distinction average (70%) under one semester of full time study PLUS an ATAR of 95 or higher. You will be required to have completed the prerequisite courses English and Chemistry. You will also be required to have a UMAT score. Registration closed for UMAT on the 18th of July, and the test will be held on the 28th of July. If you have not registered for UMAT we will not be able to assess you at this point in time. If you require any further assistance please contact the school of medicine. Alternate Pathways into Medicine at UTAS Up to 10 Australian applicants each year are accepted into Year 1 of the MBBS on the basis of their performance in one of the following UTAS degrees: Bachelor of Medical Research Bachelor of Science Bachelor of Biotechnology Bachelor of Biomedical Science Bachelor of Health Science Bachelor of Environmental Science From 2011 the approved Medicine pathway degrees will also include Bachelor of Pharmacy. To be eligible to apply for the available places, applicants must have: · completed a full-time year of study at UTAS in one of the listed degrees in the year prior to the proposed MBBS enrolment; · achieved a Distinction average or above for the two* most recent semesters of full-time study; · satisfied the Year 12 subject prerequisites for the MBBS; · completed the UMAT within the past 2 years and have achieved a combined UMAT score at least equal to the lowest UMAT score in the cohort selected in other categories. *If you have completed less than two semesters of tertiary study, you will also need an ATAR / TER of 90 or above. Q. How many places are available in the MBBS at UTAS? A. There are 120 places in total, of which 20 are reserved for full-fee paying international students and the remaining 100 are for domestic applicants. Only the Year 12 applicant category has a strict Tasmanian quota. This is a requirement due to UTAS being the only university in Tasmania. No preference is given to Tasmanian applicants in any other categories. Selections are made purely on merit. (We have categories to which we allocate students; ie, so many places for year 12 Tas, so many for Year 12 Interstate, so many for Tas Tertiary, so many for Interstate Tertiary, so many for pathways & so on. So assuming that you will fall within one of the tertiary categories, we would first rank you on your UMAT score & we would then be looking at your tertiary results & ranking you on those also. The number for each category for 2011, are not yet determined, so I cannot give you any information on this.) Q. I am currently studying Medicine or a related course at another university. Are there any provisions for me to transfer into the MBBS at UTAS and obtain credit for the studies I have already done? A. For Medicine students wanting to transfer to 1st or 2nd years, it is no longer possible until other Australian universities adopt Case Based Learning courses similar to UTAS. For students wanting to transfer to 3rd year and above, this is done on a case-by-case basis. All submissions must go through Prof James Vickers (Deputy Head of School). There are no credit provisions for other university courses in similar fields.
