Applying to study at UNSW Medicine requires several steps. To ensure you meet all deadlines, review and make a note of the Important Dates. Please read the following instructions before beginning your application.
- Apply via UNSW Admissions or University Admissions Centre (UAC)
a. UNSW Admissions: If you’re not sitting an Australian or New Zealand Year 12 exam, or if you have completed all or part of a tertiary degree program, you’ll need to submit your application through UNSW Admissions. You can apply through UNSW Admissions Apply Online
You should submit the documents required for your application as soon as possible as we hold interviews throughout the year and make offers to the program on a rolling basis. Consequently, there is a possibility that places may be filled before the application closing dates.
b. UAC Application: If you’re sitting an Australian or New Zealand Year 12 examination you must apply through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC)
If you’re sitting the International Baccalaureate Diploma exam, you can apply via UAC or UNSW Admissions.
