What’s the Difference Between Undergraduate- and Graduate-entry Medical Programs?

Undergraduate Entry: Rather than having to earn a bachelor degree first, undergraduate-entry medical programs allow students to enter directly from high school.
James Cook University’s MBBS is an undergraduate-entry program that specializes in rural, remote and indigenous medicine and is located in north Queensland, Australia.
Monash University’s undergraduate-entry medical program provides a great pathway for students who are looking to gain entry into medical school directly from high school. Find out more about Monash University Medical School’s undergraduate MBBS program!
If you have completed high school studies or would like to apply to a medical school in Australia without using your MCAT score, you may wish to learn more about undergraduate-entry medical programs offered by Australian universities. Please visit OzTREKK’s Undergraduate Medicine page to learn more about undergraduate-entry medical programs.
Graduate Entry: Some Australian Medical Schools offer a graduate-entry medical program where you first have to complete an undergraduate degree, such as a Bachelor of Science, in order to apply to a four-year medical program.
The following Australian medical schools offer a medical program at a graduate-entry level, which are similar to those medical programs offered in Canada and the United States:
