Eligibility to apply for a place at a graduate entry medical school
Graduate-entry medical programs provide opportunities to a wide range of graduates who have made a mature decision to commit to the medical profession.
All graduate-entry applicants must have completed, or be in the final year of a bachelor or honours degree. Note that some schools use postgraduate qualifications in GPA calculations.
