In Step Two, we’ve compiled a comprehensive guide on different medical programmes available in Australia and New Zealand. You no longer have to carry out the daunting task of scrolling through hundreds of web pages and forum threads or rely on personal connections for information and advice. We have dedicated staff regularly updating these resources, all for you to use for free.

There are over 20 medical schools across Australia and New Zealand. The overall standard of medical education in these two countries is excellent, equipping students with essential clinical skills and knowledge to embark on a successful career as a medical doctor. Many medical schools have outstanding facilities and high international reputation for research.

As a guide, according to the 2020 QS World University Subject Rankings (medicine), five Australian medical schools were placed in top 50 worldwide (University of Melbourne at 16th, University of Sydney at 18th, Monash University at 31st, University of New South Wales at 46th and University of Queensland at 48th), with many more Australian and New Zealand universities in the top 150.
