Medicine is an extremely rewarding career but is also one of the hardest disciplines to enter. The admission schemes and requirements are complicated and you face intense competition from tens of thousands of outstanding students.

Note: In the COVID-19 context, some information provided in this guide is likely to change. We will strive to keep this admissions guide as up-to-date as possible.

Questions You Should Be Asking Yourself

With over 20 medical schools to choose from and so many different factors to consider, you may be feeling lost.

Should I aim to enter a medical school straight after high school or after getting another degree? How do various medical schools differ? Why are there different types of places on offer and what are their implications?

These are some of the fundamental questions that you should ask yourself. Furthermore, you may even reconsider whether medicine is for you after all and leave doors open for other healthcare professional courses such as dentistry and pharmacy.
