End of Financial Year - is also the close of applications, particularly for graduates


end May and end june are key for graduates.

The end of May is a critical deadline for graduates

The 31st May heralds the close of GEMSAS applications. A large number of postgraduate medical programs commensurately state they close their application process on this date. Closures include:

  • UWA - close their online application system,

  • Griffith

  • Macquarie

  • University of Melbourne - also close Graduate Access Melbourne and Indigenous applications.

The University of Sydney (who is not part of the GEMSAS consortium) - closed their application system for domestic applicants prior to GEMSAS, on 24th May. The online application system for international students closes on the 20 June.

USYD and GEMSAS mop up documentation

Following on from the close of the application period for USYD postgraduate medicine is the provision of a lot of documentation. Supporting documentation needs to be provided by 30st May to UAC and then close on the heels of this, supporting documentation needs to be provided to the University directly by domestic applicants (14th June) - with the online confirmation page then completed by the 27th June. International applicants have until the 26th June to provide their supporting documentation to the University.

Likewise, GEMSAS require their documentation to be provided by 7th June (hard copies). If you are also wanting to make a rurality claim you need to provide hard copy information by the 14th June.

University of Melbourne docs

If you’re an international student wanting to apply for the University of Melbourne postgraduate degree you have until 21st June to submit your prerequisite assessment information.

The end of May is also important for high school students wanting to apply for postgraduate medical programs at UWA and ANU.

UWA uses the 31st May as their key date not only for graduates but also for high performing international high school students who seek direct entry to medicine. These students also need to have completed ISAT (by 31st May) or may need to have sat UCAT (in changed residency status circumstances).

ANU have introduced a new scheme - the Admission, Scholarships and Accommodation scheme. This undergraduate, domestic entrance scheme has a closing date of 31st May. This new scheme, and its associated application deadline, is important to note if your intended pathway to postgraduate medicine at ANU is though an undergraduate ANU degree.

Meanwhile over at Flinders and Macquarie…

Flinders and Macquarie unlike other graduate medicine programs who are closing applications at the end of May are already progressing interviews. Flinders have a system that enables interviews to be conducted throughout the year and close their graduate applications when places are filled. Graduate interviews take place in May and August (also in December if needed). Likewise Macquarie commence interviews in May for international students (undertaken on Skype or similar platforms) and these continue until October.

And don’t forget CASPer

The CASPer test is used by the University of Wollongong to assess graduate applicants. The final two CASPer test dates are the 3rd or 9th June. If you wish to have your school added to your CASPer score distribution list you need to notify this by 23rd June. By late June and through into August Wollongong get on with the task of scoring applicant portfolios.

Undergrad applicants don’t forget ISAT if you’re an international student

ISAT is required for international students wanting to apply for undergraduate medicine degrees at Flinders, UQ, UTAS, Monash, Western Sydney, UWA and UNSW universities. There are no set dates for ISAT.

The next Brisbane date is the 5 and 6th June and registrations are available for this until 27th May

Monash start the batting for international student direct entry

The range of international student application processes for the year at Monash kicks off with the Malaysia interview cohort with applications due by 10th June. Students also need to ensure that have sat ISAT by this date.

The end of June frenzy

The end of June wraps up the application period particularly for graduates with a bang with

  • University of Melbourne closing international applications and Flinders closing (28th June)

  • Monash closing domestic graduate entry and Deakin closing (30th June)

Not to be outdone, University of Adelaide close their applications for international undergraduates also on 30th June.
