Step 1

Complete the application form

Please complete the OzTREKK online application.

The University of Melbourne charges a $100 application fee for all MD, DDS, and DPT applicants. OzTREKK will submit a fee waiver request for you as part of the application submission process. The University of Melbourne assesses all fee waiver requests on a case-by-case basis. You will be notified by OzTREKK if the university has approved your request.


Step 2

Obtain detailed course outlines

The Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) program requires prerequisite subjects in anatomy, biochemistry and physiology taught at the second-year level, or equivalent:

Anatomy: ANAT20006 Principles of Human Structure
Biochemistry: BCMB20002 Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Physiology: PHYS20008 Human Physiology

If you have completed courses that have been approved as meeting the prerequisite requirements, then you do not need to include course outlines for these courses with your application, as your transcript(s) will show that these courses have been completed. If your courses are not on Melbourne's List of Assessed Subjects," you are encouraged to submit outlines via Melbourne's prerequisite subject assessment webform.

Step 3

Obtain final official academic transcript(s) and DAT/GAMSAT results

Academic Transcripts

You will need to submit transcripts from each institution you have attended. Your university can mail your official academic transcripts directly to OzTREKK, or you can pick up your transcripts and mail them to OzTREKK, as long as they remain in their original, sealed envelopes. We only require one copy of each transcript, even if you apply to multiple universities or programs.

Applicants must submit their final transcript, which includes your final semester's marks and evidence that you have completed your degree.

TEST Results

Applicants must also submit an official copy of their Canadian or American DAT, or GAMSAT results with their application. DAT results from January 2016 to the end of June 2018 will be accepted for the 2019 intake (TBC). Please note Canadian DAT scores are shipped via regular mail only, and are sent out within 5 business days of the order being placed.

If you want to apply using the DAT and you haven't yet completed it, you can order an official copy of your results to be sent to the OzTREKK office during your registration. If you have already completed the DAT, you will need to order a result from the CDA or ADA website through their online form. For the CDA DAT, there should be an option available in the drop-down menu to have your results sent directly to the OzTREKK office (University of Melbourne c/o OzTREKK educational services), but if you do not see this in the default options, results can be mailed to OzTREKK.

Please note: If you are also applying to Sydney's or UWA's DMD, you will have to order and pay for separate DAT score reports.

Step 4
