Australian medical school application deadlines for 2019 intake

Heads up if you are interested in applying to Australian medical schools for the 2019 intake!

Australian medical school application deadlines for 2019 intake

Learn more about Australian medical schools

OzTREKK is the Canadian expert on Australian medical schools. Every year, we help hundreds of Canadian students choose the right Australian medical school program for them. We understand admissions requirements and application procedures to Australian medical schools, and we can guide you through the differences between undergraduate streams and graduate-entry streams, and the considerations for practicing medicine following graduation.

OK, so that’s settled. Now here’s what you really want to know: the application deadlines! Have a look at our graphic, which lists the app deadlines by university.

What’s the Difference Between Graduate- and Undergraduate-entry Medical Programs?

Undergraduate Entry
Rather than having to earn a bachelor degree first, undergraduate-entry medical programs allow students to apply directly from high school. These medical programs are generally five to six years in length.

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.

Medical Licensing & Accreditation

According to CaRMS, Australian medical graduates have the best match rates returning to Canada than any other region in the world. Each year, we host annual Canadian Medical Licensing webinars, which provide the latest information regarding the accreditation and medical licensing process in Canada, as well as internships in Australia.

Apply to an Australian medical school!

Australian medical school applications are now open

Are you thinking of applying to medical schools in Australia? Now is the time to begin the application process!

Australian medical school applications are now open

Apply to an Australian medical school

OzTREKK is the most trusted source of information for international students looking at studying medicine in Australia. We are the experts in admissions requirements and application procedures to Australian Medical Schools, and we guide you through the differences between undergraduate streams and graduate streams, and the considerations for practicing medicine following graduation.

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. This means students can graduate from medical school in only 5–6 years.

JCU medical school offers a six-year undergraduate-entry program that specializes in rural, remote and indigenous medicine and is located in north Queensland, Australia.

The Monash University Medical School five-year undergraduate-entry medical program provides a great pathway for students who are looking to gain entry into medical school directly from high school.

Graduate Entry
Some Australian med 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:

Medical Licensing & Accreditation

According to CaRMS, Australian medical graduates have the best match rates returning to Canada than any other region in the world. Each year, OzTREKK hosts annual Canadian Medical Licensing webinars, which are exclusive to students who submit their Australian medical school application via OzTREKK. These webinars provide the latest information regarding the accreditation and medical licensing process in Canada, as well as internships in Australia.
