Applications to Australian Medical Schools for the 2015 intake are now officially open!
What’s the Difference Between Undergraduate- and Graduate-entry Medical Programs?
Undergraduate Entry: Rather than having to earn a bachelor degree first, undergraduate-entry medical programs allow students to enter directly from high school.
James Cook University’s MBBS is an undergraduate-entry program that specializes in rural, remote and indigenous medicine and is located in north Queensland, Australia.
Monash University’s undergraduate-entry medical program provides a great pathway for students who are looking to gain entry into medical school directly from high school.
If you have completed high school studies or would like to apply to a medical school in Australia without using your MCAT score, you may wish to learn more about undergraduate-entry medical programs offered by Australian universities.
Graduate Entry: Some Australian Medical Schools offer a graduate-entry medical program where you first have to complete an undergraduate degree, such as a Bachelor of Science, in order to apply to a four-year medical program.
The following Australian medical schools offer a medical program at a graduate-entry level, which are similar to those medical programs offered in Canada and the United States:
- Monash University Medical School
- University of Melbourne Medical School
- University of Queensland Medical School
- University of Sydney Medical School
