Shortlisted applicants will also be required to undertake an interview and Situational Judgement Test (SJT).

Multiple Mini Interview (MMI)

Monash uses the MMI for the selection of students. MMI Stations comprise a series of scenarios and associated questions focusing on an applicant’s:

  • advocacy
  • collaboration
  • critical thinking
  • empathy
  • ethical reasoning
  • motivation;

The MMI consists of four sequential interview 'stations'. At each station, the applicant will be interviewed for eight minutes followed by two minutes for scoring and changeover (ie ten minutes per station) with a 'circuit’ taking 40-50minutes to complete.

This process is held at various locations during the year including Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia. For details about interview dates and locations please visit the Important Dates page. Only those applicants who attend an interview will remain in the final ranked list to be eligible for a place.

Situational Judgement Test (SJT)

The SJT is an online test held in examination conditions either prior to or after your MMI.  You will be presented with numerous realistic hypothetical scenarios each with an associated response item which you will have to either rank or rate as most appropriate. You will be allocated up to 90 minutes to complete this test.

Important Note

All applicants applying for this course are only allowed to attend the MMI and/or SJT once. Those who are re-applying for this course and have previously attended the MMI and/or SJT for this course are not required to attend the MMI and/or SJT again.
