Entry requirements

Last Updated: 18 August 2023

Minimum Entry Requirements

International students interested in Graduate Entry Medicine at Monash must have completed, or be in the final year of completing, a bachelor's degree from an internationally recognised university. The degree must consist of significant and broad biomedical science content (e.g. Pharmacology, Physiology, Immunology, Biochemistry, Microbiology or Genetics) to be eligible for consideration.

Applicants must achieve a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 6.0 out of 7.0 to be considered.

Important Notes

  • Applications are assessed on an applicant's undergraduate degree only. Any further results, including graduate study or honours, are not taken into consideration. For those who have not yet completed their degree, the minimum GPA must be reached at the time of application.
  • Applicants are not required to sit the Graduate Medical School Admissions Test (GAMSAT) for this course. Applicants should be aware, however, that admission is highly competitive and we recommend that students consider alternative options for graduate entry medical courses including those where GAMSAT is a requirement.

Inherent Requirements and Reasonable Adjustments

To meet the requirements of the Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine at Monash, you need to demonstrate that you have the abilities, knowledge, and skills to achieve specific core learning outcomes. These are called inherent requirements, and they are embedded in the course and unit learning outcomes. For more information, please visit https://www.monash.edu/study/courses/admissions-transparency/inherent-requirements-for-courses

Monash promotes access and equity for students who have a disability, ongoing medical or mental health condition by providing reasonable adjustments. Reasonable adjustments refer to measures or actions taken to enable students with disability to participate on the same basis as other students and reduce the impacts of their condition on their studies. If you have an approved reasonable adjustment, it is not an adjustment to the inherent requirements of the course but an adjustment to how you can fulfil the inherent requirements. If it is determined that inherent requirements cannot be met, even by implementing reasonable adjustments, we can provide guidance regarding other possible study options.

If you feel you may experience challenges meeting the inherent requirements of the course because of your disability, medical or mental health condition, please contact medicineadmissions@monash.edu for advice.
