How selection works


The selection criteria for Deakin University medicine comprises a 2 stage process (like many other universities):-

Stage 1: Your GPA and GAMSAT results (50% for each) plus any eligible bonuses (if you are a domestic student) or prior clinical experience (if you are an international student) are used to determine who's offered an interview. Your GEMSAS application may also be used as part of the student ranking process.

Indigenous applicants are assessed for interview based on their GPA and information provided through application forms.

Stage 2: Your interview results (50%) are then combined with the GPA (25%) and GAMSAT/MCAT (25%) plus any adjustments (if applicable), to determine offers of a place in Deakin University's medical degree. 

Offers to Indigenous applicants are based on the student’s application form information, GPA and interview.
