Monash Medical School undergraduate-entry applications are open for second round

Earlier this year, the Monash Medical School application deadline was February 15, 2013, and the in-Canada interviews were held March 18 – 22, 2013.

The medical school at Monash University has just advised OzTREKK that the applications for the undergraduate-entry MBBS program are being reopened for the 2014 intake, as the Monash Medical School representatives will be in Canada in October to conduct interviews.

– current Grade 12 students; or

About the Monash Undergraduate-entry MBBS program

Approximately 190 international students are accepted into the medical program at Clayton Campus each year, offering international students an opportunity to study medicine as a student in one of Australia’s most respected and prestigious undergraduate medicine programs.

Admissions Criteria/Entry Requirements for Canadians

1. Grade Point Average (GPA)

Grade 12 prerequisite subjects include English and Chemistry (minimum of 80% in each), and applicants must demonstrate a high level of academic achievement: a minimum of 89% – 90% overall average in Grade 12 subjects. Averages and calculations depend upon province. Please see Monash University’s Information for Canadian Applicants 2014 and 2015 entry for detailed information.

2. ISAT Results

International applicants are required to undertake the International Student Admissions Test (ISAT) before September 27, 2013.

3. Interview Results

Successful applicants are then considered for an interview, which is to be undertaken in Canada, October 28 in Toronto, and October 31 in Vancouver.

Selection into the medical program is based upon a combination of the applicant’s aptitude test, academic studies, and performance in a multi-mini interview (MMI). This interview format allows the faculty to better determine applicants who possess the desired personal qualities required to succeed in the MBBS program. The MMI format allows each applicant to be assessed by trained interviewers. MMI stations comprise a series of scenarios and associated questions focusing on an applicant’s relevant personal qualities including motivation, communication skills, critical thinking and ethical/empathetic reasoning.

Total Number of Places in the Program: 190

Number of Places Available for International Students: approx. 65
