Admission Requirements:

Monash medical students may take intermit from their medical degree to pursue a BMedSc(Hons) research program in a discipline area offered by the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

Cap on Enrolment Numbers: There is a cap on the number of BMedSc(Hons) places available for domestic Monash medical students. This is to ensure that we do not exceed, or fail to meet, our graduating medical student load commitment with the Victorian Government. If the demand for BMedSc(Hons) places exceeds the cap number, academic criteria (the average mark from MED2200/GMA2200, and MED3200), will be used to cap domestic BMedSc(Hons) offers. (Most years we can accept all students who apply for the program).

External and International Applicants: Students who are currently studying or have completed a medicine degree at a university other than Monash must have achieved at least a credit average in studies equivalent to at least a minimum of three years of the Monash undergraduate medical degree in terms of curriculum content, learning outcomes and academic standards as determined by the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University.

External and International applicants will have their entire academic record considered.  Students must supply a certified copy of their academic record through the online admissions portal:  If you are currently undertaking studies, forward final results and evidence of completion as soon as these are available.  An offer cannot be completed until this information is received.  Please do NOT send original documents.
