Admissions

Entry Level

Graduate
Graduate entry courses are Bachelor or Masters level courses that you can’t enter straight from school. You can only study them if you already have a degree. At Notre Dame Sydney School of Medicine, this degree can be in any field. Graduate entry medical degrees are shorter than undergraduate medical courses. The reason they’re shorter is that the university can assume that you’ve already developed the ability to learn effectively at university level and that you have an understanding of the basic sciences.

Entry Criteria

Applicants are ranked by combining the standardised scores calculated from a combination of the GPA, GAMSAT and Notre Dame Portfolio with the applicant’s interview score.
