Spring's here with its mix of hard deadlines for undergrads and hope, in the form of interviews and some offers.


Late September action

Late September signals a number of interviews taking place for graduates. These include UWA (domestic applicants), Notre Dame (Sydney), Macquarie (domestic students), University of Wollongong and Flinders (Northern Territory interviews). The University of Adelaide also undertake interviews for international undergraduate applicants.

Meanwhile over at Monash they are actively progressing international offers for both graduates and direct entry students from Singapore, Malaysia and other areas of Asia.

Critical closing date - 30 September for undergrads

The most critical date in the undergrad calendar is 30th September with this being the closing date for applications/early bird /timely applications for medicine. Make sure you are aware of what you need to do to complete your applications for your chosen universities. Also, and most critically, check whether you need to

  • apply to just the Admission Centre (ie UAC, VTAC, QTAC, SATAC or TISC) or

  • whether you apply directly to the university, or

  • whether you need to apply to both the Admission Centre and the university

Also check what documentation you need to submit and determine whether application fees also need to be paid. More details about the process can be found in the 10 Step Application Guide.

The 30th September closing date also applies to undergraduate degrees that lead to medicine at the University of Sydney and also the Bachelor of Clinical Science at Macquarie.
