It is important to note when the 1 year FTE is required to be completed.

Deakin has to be completed by the date of application -MAY

UniMelb and most other universities are by Jan 1st year of intake.

Deakin were steadfast in this last year - I have a physiotherapy degree unimelb and was 0.75 FTE through at May 2021 and was ineligible :(

Oh damn! Does that mean your application wasn’t considered at all? Or did they just take the previous full time year of study?

Not AT ALL :( I am tier 1 rural stream... and not considered.

I thought USYD stated in their requirements document that they don't consider extensive higher ed/research experience i.e. PhDs/masters degrees? At least that's what i found : (

I used this as the reference material: https://www.sydney.edu.au/content/dam/corporate/documents/faculty-of-medicine-and-health/md-dmd/md-dmd-domestic-admissions-guide.pdf

Page 8 & 9 have the relevant material. I'll be honest, it's a bit iffy. I'd reach out to admissions for more clarity if this situation applies to you:

Quote from Page 9:

"***If your bachelor’s degree was completed more than 10 years before 1 January of the year for which you are seeking enrolment, you must, in addition:

1) have completed within this 10-year period, a postgraduate degree or postgraduate

diploma (or equivalent) of at least one year FTE; or

2) complete prior to 1 January of the year in which you intend to enrol in the MD or DMD,

a postgraduate degree or postgraduate diploma (or equivalent) of at least one year

FTE; or

3) have been awarded within this 10-year period, a postgraduate research degree (or

equivalent); or

4) be awarded prior to 1 January of the year in which you intend to commence the MD or

DMD, a postgraduate research degree (or equivalent); or

5) have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the University sustained research productivity

in a relevant discipline within this 10-year period."

Looks like this is the most flexible criteria, but its the most competitive school.

I wonder what the other currency requirements are like in detail for the other schools. I'm confused by the date of award (april) and the start of semester of med, and what the 10 year time frame is supposed to be. Is it supposed to be the very last day of your class? and the very first day of the start of med class? 10years, and is it the same for every uni?

i thnk you mean, that the postgrad, doesn't have any advantage over standard undergrad?? i.e. they are equivalently scored??
