PATH & PROGRAMS

PATHWAY (SCHOOL LEAVERS)

Overview

School leavers may be eligible to apply for a Direct Pathway to Medicine or a Direct Pathway to Dentistry. Entry is on a competitive basis, with places being offered to the highest-ranking applicants. To be considered for a place, applicants must meet minimum eligibility requirements and must not have commenced any tertiary studies, including university degree studies or vocational training at diploma level or above.

Successful applicants who gain a place in a Direct Pathway will commence UWA undergraduate studies and progress to their postgraduate degree without the need to sit a graduate admissions test or undergo further interviews. The International Direct Pathway place in the postgraduate MD or DMD is conditional on:

Successful completion of a UWA bachelor’s degree with a minimum Faculty Grade Point Average (FGPA) of 5.5; and
retention of international student status.
International Direct Pathway students will first complete a UWA Bachelor of Biomedical Science, Arts, Commerce or Science. Students who wish to undertake a Direct Pathway via the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) require a minimum ATAR of 98 (or equivalent) to be considered.

Applicants should ensure their application preferences reflect their true career aspirations. A course offer for a Direct Pathway to Dentistry or a Direct Pathway to Medicine is specific to that course and cannot be transferred from one to the other. Direct Pathway students may apply for graduate entry into a different postgraduate course should their career aspirations change.



POSTGRADUATE

Overview

Bachelor degree holders or students who are in their first bachelor’s degree may be eligible to apply for graduate entry into the Doctor of Medicine (MD) or the Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD). Students who are in progress of their first bachelor’s degree may apply during their final year, with any course offer being conditional on completion of all bachelor’s degree requirements by 31 December of the application year.

Graduate entry into the MD and DMD is a competitive process based on GPA, GAMSAT (or equivalent) score and an interview process. Places are limited and are awarded to the highest-ranked applicants.

To be considered for admission into the MD or DMD, an applicant must have:

A bachelor’s degree, or an equivalent qualification, as recognised by UWA. Recognised bachelor’s degrees are those conferred by Australian universities or higher education institutions recognised by the Australian Qualifications Framework or the National Office of Overseas Skills Recognition (NOOSR). While academic results from postgraduate study will be taken into account, postgraduate studies undertaken without a bachelor’s degree cannot be accepted as an equivalent qualification

International applicants for the MD or DMD may sit the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) in place of the GAMSAT and require an overall minimum MCAT score of 492 with no section under 123, or a minimum GAMSAT score of 50 with no section under 50. International applicants for the DMD may submit Canadian or American Dental Association Dental Admissions Test results (DAT/CDAT). Refer to information below regarding Graduate Admissions Tests for further details.
