If your application meets the required criteria to study at UNSW Medicine, you may be selected for an interview with us.
How am I selected for an interview?
Interviews are offered based on your selection rank and UCAT ANZ overall score. Interviews are offered to applicants with the highest combined ranking in these two areas. Your results won’t be averaged. You must receive sufficiently high marks on both selection criteria to be successful at this stage. There are approximately 500 interview places for local applicants each year.
How do interviews work?
Interviews are structured and cover a wide range of relevant topics. There will be two interviewers who are either academic staff, medical practitioners or community representatives.
If you’re shortlisted, you must be available to attend an interview during the interview period, which is listed in Important Dates. Applicants who can’t attend their interview won’t progress further. Selected information from your application form will be shared with your interviewers before your interview.
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 2021 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.
