Undergraduate applications and offers

Undergraduate medicine key dates

Entry into undergraduate medical degrees is highly competitive and the selection process is rigorous. Make sure you’re in the running by getting your application in on time and keeping the interview dates clear.

All application and offer dates have been provided by the universities and apply to courses starting semester 1, 2019. Contact the universities directly if you have any questions about the selection process.

Your UAC application

All applicants should apply through UAC by midnight on Friday 28 September 2018. The application processing fee increases after this date.

In your UAC application, first on your course preference list should be the course you’d most like to do, followed by your second, third, fourth and fifth preferences. If you’re not selected for your first preference, you’ll be considered equally with all other eligible applicants for your second preference, and so on.

Where interviews form part of the selection process, all eligible applicants will be invited to attend, regardless of how they have ordered their preferences.
