Graduate Entry Medical Programmes

Last updated: 21/07/2021

In a nutshell, the process of applying for a graduate entry programme in Australia involves registering and sitting the GAMSAT (or the MCAT), submitting an application through GEMSAS or individual university websites, sitting an interview and waiting for an offer.

The table below summarises important application processes and dates for graduate entry programmes. For some items where the date is not confirmed yet, an approximate date is provided based on the past years.

Please note that not all dates will be relevant for all graduate applicants. Basically, you can ignore any GAMSAT or GEMSAS-related dates if you are applying to Monash University for graduate entry. Also, if you are applying to Flinders University or University of Sydney, you can ignore GEMSAS-related dates. International students should also note the MCAT dates here.

As you can see, you will have many deadlines and assessments (the GAMSAT and interviews) throughout the year on top of your university study. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you start preparing early for your GAMSAT/MCAT and interviews.
