Students may apply for admission to UNSW Medicine after completing some tertiary study. Tertiary or university study includes bachelor degrees, masters by coursework, masters by research and PhD.
Applicants who have completed at least 0.75 full-time study equivalent of their first year of a tertiary program will be assessed based on "BEST OF" algorithm - The following minimum criteria applies:
- Secondary school qualification component must reach 96.00 ATAR of equivalent AND
- Tertiary study component must reach WAM 70 or equivalent
Once the applicant has met the minimum requirement, the qualification with a higher selection rank would be used as a final selection rank for medicine admissions purposes.
For applicants who have completed more than one program of University study, UAC will assess each qualification separately and use the highest score to determine the tertiary academic rank.
To find out if you're eligible to apply to study Medicine at UNSW or to have your qualification assessed, contact UAC and request a Qualification Assessment Service (QAS) which is available for a fee. This service is available year-round and beneficial to applicants who have completed any university study. UNSW Medicine receives academic scores through UAC in December each year and is unable to do individual qualification pre-assessment outside of the formal application process.
Please note that domestic students who are currently enrolled in a medical degree at another Australian university aren't eligible to seek admission to UNSW Medicine as a commencing student. Please visit UNSW's Special Entry Schemes to learn more.
