For local and rural students, there are two entry categories available.
Unbonded Medical Places
Bonded Medical Places
- Applicants select the type of place they would like to apply for when completing the UNSW Medicine Application Form.
- As there are separate quotas for each category, applicants maximise their chance of being offered a place in the UNSW Medicine program by being prepared to accept a place in either categories. However, it is important that applicants do not enter a preference for a category in which they have no intention of accepting a place.
- Applicants who accept a bonded medical place will automatically be considered for an unbonded place should one become available. This 'upgrade' will be announced after the Semester 1 census day (31 March). This process is an internal process and upgraded students will be informed by email. As a guide, each year we upgrade up to 10 bonded students.
- The Commonwealth Government's Medical Rural Bonded Scholarship (MRBS) Scheme is now closed to new entrants. Visit the Department of Health MRBS Scheme website for further information.
