  • All international applicants for the graduate entry pathway
  • All domestic applicants for the graduate entry pathway
  • All UQ-Ochsner applicants
  • All international applicants for the provisional entry pathway

International applicants (graduate entry pathway only)

We are aware that some international applicants for the graduate entry pathway have been unable to sit the MCAT or GAMSAT due to the impacts of COVID-19, including test cancellations. To ensure these applicants are not unfairly affected, we have implemented a COVID-19 contingency plan for our 2021 Doctor of Medicine international graduate entry intake. 

MCAT

  • Extended validity period of MCAT from 3 years to 4 years. 
  • Applicants can apply without an MCAT score, but will be required to provide confirmation of a test booking.
  • UQ will assess eligibility and invite to interview based on GPA.
  • UQ will issue conditional offers: Applicants will require a minimum score of 504 and satisfy all admission requirements to receive a confirmed place, noting that this is subject to availability of places.

GAMSAT

  • Applicants can apply without a GAMSAT score, but will be required to provide confirmation of a test booking.
  • UQ will assess eligibility and invite to interview based on GPA.
  • UQ will issue conditional offers: Applicants will require a minimum score of 50 in each section and satisfy all admission requirements to receive a confirmed place, noting that this is subject to availability of places.
