deakin university detailed entry Requirements


There are a number of notable aspects in how Deakin structures its postgraduate medical degree and how the undergraduate path flows to it. 


Deakin requirements regarding previous degrees

Deakin might not be specific about type of degree and which university it comes from, but they are specific about the age of prior degrees and its duration. Your undergraduate degree, must be less than 10 years old and any postgraduate study must be completed within 10 years of commencement of medicine. You can, however, undertake additional study (1 year), being honours, graduate diploma or higher, if your undergraduate degree is more than 10 years old. 

Deakin will not accept undergraduate degrees that are less than 3 years in duration - so this excludes accelerated undergraduate degrees.


Higher degrees matter if you're (degree is) old

As indicated above, if your undergraduate degree is older than 10 years you can undertake additional study and still comply with entry requirements. Any postgraduate study also has to be completed within 10 years. Deakin, however, do not give any credit in terms of GPA calculations for any degrees you might have that are higher than honours.
