Applications will be assessed on the following criteria:
A minimum score in MCAT of 504 is required. Please note that a score of 504 is not a guarantee that you will receive an offer. This is a very competitive program and the final cut-off MCAT scores may be higher than 504. The MCAT must be gained in the four years preceding the year of commencement.
- GPA and pre-requisites
B average in your most recently completed degree (Bachelor or Masters degree). This degree must have been completed within the ten year period preceding the proposed commencement date. You must also have completed, or be enrolled to complete the two required subject pre-requisites. More information about this is detailed below.
If you have completed both a Bachelors degree, and a Masters degree, the GPA from your masters degree will be calculated as this is the most recent. Science courses are not weighted any higher than other courses; if you fail a course and retake it, the higher grade is not taken instead. Every grade taken as credit towards your degree will be used to calculated GPA evenly. The pre-requisites are not weighted at all, only marked as having been completed.
If you apply and have completed a Bachelors degree, but are still in progress of a Masters degree, only the Bachelors GPA will be used for admission as it is the degree that is complete at the time of application. For this reason, we require applicants to apply as a senior, and provide a semester 1 transcript that includes finalised grades.
3. Multiple Mini Interviews
Eligible applicants will be invited to participate in a Multiple-Mini Interview (MMI). Invitations to interview are based on MCAT, GPA, and places available.
How to apply
If you have satisfied the admissions criteria, submit your application directly to the UQ-Ochsner Enrolment team. The Enrolment team will work with you to make sure your application is complete. Once ready, the Enrolment team will progress your full application on to the UQ International Admissions team to calculate GPA, assess MCAT validity, and confirm all other requirements.
