How selection works

 

The selection criteria for the University of Wollongong medicine comprises a 2 stage process (like many other universities) but the selection criteria used to determine who's offered a place varies, depending upon who you are:

Stage 1

The University of Wollongong uses the CASPer (situational judgement test) in their application process as the primary tool to rank domestic applicants for interview. The University of Wollongong Portfolio is a written description of your experience and your achievements. The Portfolio is submitted as part of your initial application to the University for the medical program.The submitted Portfolio is then used as an additional tool to rank candidates.Your weighted GPA and GAMSAT results, plus your Portfolio (including your rurality rating) as well as CASPer are therefore used to determine who's offered an interview.

International applicants are ranked for interview based on their Portfolio as well as MCAT/GAMSAT and GPA results.

Stage 2

If you're an International applicant, your interview results are combined with your GPA and GAMSAT/MCAT and assessment of your Portfolio, to determine if you're offered a place in the University of Wollongong's medical degree. 

If you're not an International applicant, your interview results are combined with your Portfolio results including rurality score (if you're a rural applicant) and this is used to determine if you're offered a place.
