Want to increase your chances by 10x?
Given that only two universities in New Zealand offer a medical program, studying in Australia is an attractive option. Not only does medicine in Australia have 10x the amount of places available, due to more universities offering the program, but the prestige and international reputation is higher. New Zealand students are also considered domestic students and it is quicker to complete when compared with New Zealand.
The popular pathway for New Zealand students considering Australia, is direct entry from high school. For this pathway, students must complete the same hurdles as Australian domestic students - excellent high school grades and the UCAT in their final year of high school. For students doing the NCEA curriculum, their grades are converted favourably into an ATAR score, increasing the likelihood of acceptance.
As New Zealand students are considered domestic, they are priority one students so are offered places into medical school first, and the fees to pay are also only at the domestic cost.
In the case they decide to pursue medicine in New Zealand, the student would have wasted no time in their journey and their UCAT in high school acts as good practice ahead of sitting it again in First Year.
