Important Notes

If you are completing your Year 12 equivalent studies late in 2020 and can only provide final, certified documentation in December 2020 or January 2021, you should consider applying for 2022 entry as places for the Medicine programs at Monash may be filled by the time we can fully assess your application for an offer.

International students who, during the application process, become citizens or permanent residents of Australia (including New Zealand citizens) will no longer be eligible for a full fee international place and will have their application terminated. Applicants who are applying for Australian Permanent Residency or Citizenship must notify Faculty Admissions of any changes to their residential status immediately.

Applicants who are required to complete National Military Service in their home country can apply during their final year in service.

Foundation programs in Australia

*International students studying Foundation programs in Australia for example, Trinity, WAUFP need to apply directly via International Recruitment Services by 30 October 2020 AND sit the ISAT by 23 August 2020.
