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 for the JCU medical program earlier rather than later.
It is important to note that the majority of those that have been successful in gaining admission in to the medical program 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.

To Schedule an Interview

Please fill out a James Cook University Medical School meeting request form: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JCUMBBS2014int

You do not need to submit a complete application at this stage to be considered for an interview; however, you will need to provide OzTREKK with a copy of your official transcript (or interim transcript) to verify your eligibility for an interview.

Entry Requirements for the JCU Medical Program

Entry into the JCU MBBS program is directly from high school. Students may also transfer into the program during their undergraduate degree or at the completion of their undergraduate degree.

  • High school cumulative average necessary to be considered is a minimum of 85% in Grade 12 subjects, including prerequisite subject grades.
  • If you are applying to the program after you have partially or fully completed your post-secondary studies, you should have a Canadian GPA of 80% cumulative average across all university studies, but to have a competitive application, applicants should have achieved at least an 82% cumulative average.
  • Interview: held in-person and via video conference
