About the Interviews

An interview is a necessary component of the admission process for entry into the JCU Medical School and it is strongly encouraged that you undertake the interviews earlier rather than later.
It is important to note that the majority of those that have been successful in gaining admission in to the MBBS at James Cook University have interviewed in person in Canada, with many receiving offers prior to the application deadline. It is recommended that you undertake and participate in the in-person interviews in Canada in June.
