Undergraduate Medical Schools in Australia

In Australia, there are two pathways for applicants to undergraduate universities. The first of these is the school leaver pathway, and the second is the alternate pathway. While the school leaver pathway is quite specific, the methodologies by which undergraduate universities admit such students still differs greatly amongst them. For a relatively up-to-date summary of these methodologies, please refer to the table below. The second, much broader of the two categories, encompasses non-standards (including those who possess a degree, and those who have only partially completed a degree) and Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, as well as special access or consideration schemes.

The universities in Australia that run an undergraduate medical program are:

  • The University of New South Wales
  • The University of Western Sydney
  • The University of Newcastle
  • The University of New England
  • The University of Adelaide
  • Monash University
  • James Cook University
  • University of Tasmania
  • University of Western Australia
  • Bond University
  • University of Queensland (provisional entry)
  • University of Sydney (provisional entry)
  • Griffith University (provisional entry)

Entry Requirements

School Leaver for 2011 Intake

A school leaver is also a student who has completed high school but does not have a tertiary record, eg, a GAP year student.

While MedStudentsOnline attempts to provide up-to-date and accurate information regarding undergraduate medical schools in Australia and the admission details to these universities, it is important that all prospective students verify this information with the universities, and ensure that the sites of each university is consulted before applying. This is a guide only and should be treated as such.
