Graduate Entry Medicine
There are several options available to graduates looking to undertake medical training in Australia or New Zealand. The next intake for these programmes will be Semester 1 (February) 2019. Application deadlines range from April – September 2018.
Australian and New Zealand medical schools have deservedly excellent international reputations for the quality of their training and research. Five Australian universities are currently rated in the world’s top 50 for medicine, according to the latest QS World University Rankings by Subject.
Many Australian Schools of Medicine believe that the ‘soft’ skills and attributes so critical to a successful career in medicine – empathy, communication and personal maturity – are often more readily found in graduates, who have had more time and the benefit of more life experience to develop them, rather than in school leaving students, however academically able.
Graduate entry medicine programmes are favoured over school-leaving courses by many of Australia’s top universities, and there are a number of programmes available to international applicants. An international applicant is anyone who does not hold citizenship or permanent residency of Australia or New Zealand.
The following universities offer graduate entry medical programmes open to international applicants:
- Australian National University (ANU)
- Deakin University
- Flinders University
- Griffith University
- Macquarie University
- Monash University
- University of Melbourne
- University of Queensland
- University of Sydney
- The University of Western Australia
