How to apply

If you're currently studying an Australian Year 12 in Australia or overseas, International Baccalaureate (IB) in Australia or New Zealand, or NCEA in New Zealand, please apply using VTAC Code 2800311233 (International Fee Paying) through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC).

Applicants undertaking other entry pathways need to submit their applications through an agent in your country or direct to Monash University.

International students should refer to the Medicine program admission requirements to confirm their eligibility before applying.


Monash uses a Multi Mini Interview (MMI) for the selection of students. The MMI consists of four sequential interview 'stations' focusing on an applicant’s:

  • advocacy;
  • collaboration;
  • critical thinking;
  • empathy;
  • ethical reasoning;
  • motivation; and,
  • resilience.

Only those applicants who attend an interview will remain in the final ranked list to be considered for a place in the course.

Important Notes

  • All applicants applying for this course are only allowed to attend the MMI once. Those who are re-applying for this course and have previously attended the MMI for this course are not eligible to attend the MMI again.
  • Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview via email and will be required to log in to an online system to self-allocate a time to attend. Once the system closes, changes will not be permitted and late requests cannot be accommodated.


Offers for a place in Medicine will only be made once applicants have provided all official, certified, final academic transcripts. We do not make conditional offers for Medicine courses based on incomplete studies, predicted or provisional results as we are unable to determine an applicant's eligibility until we have received all of the complete and certified documents, including:

  • official final academic transcripts
  • evidence of successful completion of studies
  • evidence of meeting the minimum English language requirements
  • other prerequisite study requirements for the course.


International applicants are admitted into the program on a full-fee basis. More information can be found on the course fees website.

Other expenses international students would expect to incur are overseas student health cover (OSHC), accommodation, transport and living expenses, plus textbooks and stationery. Read more about cost of living in Melbourne and other study costs.

Important Notes

  • If you are completing your Year 12 equivalent studies in 2023 and can only provide final, certified documentation in December 2023 or January 2024, you should consider applying for 2025 entry as places for the Medicine program 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.
    • If you expect to change residency status during the selection and admissions process, you should complete the UCAT (required for domestic applicants) in addition to the ISAT. For more information, please visit the UCAT ANZ website.
  • International students who become permanent residents and/or Australian citizens once they are enrolled in the course are not guaranteed a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP). Instead, they will be converted to a full-fee domestic student.
