Due to COVID-19 pandemic impact on HSC Exams and ATAR release, we are currently reviewing selection dates and admissions processes to make sure the selection process is fair and equitable for all applicants for 2022 entry. Please check this page regularly for any changes and updates


Your application to study medicine at UNSW requires several steps. Make sure you review our Application Process as well as the key dates below to ensure you complete all the requirements. 

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 and related travel restrictions, UNSW Medicine has made the decision to conduct all interviews for entry into the BMed/MD program for Term 1 2022 online. This means that applicants will not be required to come to one of our campuses for a face-to-face interview, but instead join the interview online from home. You can find further details on our UNSW Medicine Online Admission interviews – Information for applicants factsheet.
