maybe it's because there are many medical courses and a much larger demand for doctors in those countries? The fee is not just meant to cover the expenditure of the department; it is also a barrier to entry into the medical profession. Whether deliberate on the part of the government or just a natural consequence of the larger market for medical courses, I'm not sure.

Can someone link me to Monash's medical programme? All I can find is the Bachelor of Medical Science, which requires the completion of "at least the first two years of undergraduate study in a recognized medicine course".

Also, does anyone know if UMelb offers Medicine to international students? I've been to the website but I did not find any information regarding that. Similarly, I could not find any information regarding an undergraduate Medical programme (if there is any) on the websites of USyd and ANU.

Thanks alot in advance!

http://www.med.monash.edu.au/medical/

Last I heard, UMelb is turning its medical programme into a graduate-only programme, which means you need a bachelors.. Not sure about USyd and ANU.

I couldn't find any undergraduate medicine option on ANU's website.

But for USyd, http://www.medfac.usyd.edu.au/future...gree/index.php
they have a combined degree program which involves an undergrad degree and a medical degree.

I think Monash may be one of the more viable choices right now.

Happy to help you with your application to Monash. Just PM me. Can also help you with other Aussie unis offering undergrad entry into medicince as well as in the UK. But you must have 3 As at A level including at Chem and at least one other science subject.

Medicine at Uni of Melb, USyd and ANU are graduate entry.

Thanks LockT31W and iDeAs for you responses. I guess Monash is the way to go then, provided that I attain the required results.

Do keep your options open cos competition is extremely keen and there is a small quota for international students. Having AAA or AAAA is just a pre-requisite, still have exams eg UMAT (Aust) UKCAT (UK) to go through plus interview. To put things into perspective, I've been advised by one of the colleges that annually thousands of applicants with AAA are rejected.

I don't think so. It will be tough this year because Monash is one of the remaining few universities still offering undergraduate MBBS in Australia.
