i) The University of Auckland : Medicine  

Entry requirements for Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB)
Please note:
– All applicants are allowed only two attempts at applying to the MBChB program.
– Entry requirements may vary from year to year. For the latest information, applicants should consult the website, the faculty prospectus or the Faculty Admissions Office.

Application categories:
There are two application categories for MBChB entrance
– First Year BHSc or BSc (Biomedical Science)
– Graduate entry
The applicants need to appear for the Undergraduate Medical and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT) in the year of application.
Students need to register for the UMAT online.

Entry Categories

1. First Year BHSc or BSc (Biomedical Science)
In the year of application, applicants must finish (within one academic year, excluding Summer Semester) the eight required first year courses in either the Bachelor of Health Sciences (BHSc) or the Bachelor of Science (BSc Biomedical Science) at the University of Auckland, listed in the tables below. Candidates should be cognizant of the fact that only the first attempt for these courses will be regarded for medical admissions in the First Year category.
Following the successful completion of the eight prescribed first year courses, applicants achieving a minimum GPA of 6.0 (B+ average) are eligible for consideration for an admissions interview.
All eligible applicants will then be graded and called for interview based on their grades obtained in the four common courses (highlighted below in bold) that are offered in both the BHSc and the BSc (Biomedical Science) programs. If the final grades for the four common courses are not available, an interim grade (highest possible) will be temporarily assigned for the interview ranking only. Official final results will be used for the final selection.
Meeting the cut-off GPA of 6.0 (B+ average) does not assure of an interview. Circa twice as many eligible candidates as there are places available in the medical program will be interviewed. The minimum GPA required for an admission interview is determined once the university has sifted through the entire application pool for that admission period and it can differ from year to year.
