Facts and Figures
There are 12 graduate entry programs in Australia offered by 11 universities. Nine medical programs accept international applicants offering a total of approximately 400 places in 2012 for international applicants. The University of Queensland and the University of Melbourne accept the greatest number of international applicants.
The GAMSAT Consortium is introducing an on-line application and matching system for applicants to Australian graduate-entry medical schools. This is a new centralized system that all graduate entry programs participate in except the program at the University of Sydney. Due to this new system, applicants will only be interviewed by their first choice medical school. If they are not admitted, they will be considered for their other choices but will not need another interview.
The fact that the University of Sydney does not participate means that you can apply through GEMSAS and get a medical school interview this way, but can also have a second chance at interview by applying to the University of Sydney separately.
The 12 English taught graduate entry medical programs are listed below:
The GPA and MCAT minimum requirements in Australia tend to be slightly lower than those in North America and the UK; the minimum GPA is usually 5.0 out of 7.0 (roughly 2.67 out of 4.0 or a lower second class honours). Some schools set more competitive GPA cutoffs based on competition, and many weigh the most recent years of study at university more heavily than the first years. In general, the minimum requirement for the MCAT is 8/8/8/M, but for some universities, applicants need to score significantly higher to be competitive. GAMSAT scores cutoffs change yearly, but in the recent years they have been between 58 and 65.
In the MSAG Worldwide 2012-2013, you will find the exact cutoffs, selection formulae, admissions statistics, university rankings, information for international application regarding selection criteria and places available as well as the GPA, exam requirements, costs and interview requirements of each of the 12 Graduate Entry Medicine programs in Australia.
