Hi Ask Monash University,

If I were to receive an offer in a course from Monash in the first round and accept it, would it still be possible to get a second round offer in another Monash course (if I shifted its preference to #1)

Would I have to reject the first round offer to be eligible for the second round offer?

Hi Individu,
 
You should always accept the offer you receive in Round 1. If you would like to be considered for a second round offer, you can then go back into VTAC and change your course preference order (shift the one you really want above the course you received an offer for). If places for your course of interest are still available in Round 2 and you meet all the course requirements, you may receive an offer in round 2. If you do receive an offer in Round 2, you can then go back and withdraw the offer you received in Round 1.

Hi Ask Monash University,

I recently received an email from the Faculty of Arts saying:

We are currently assessing your application and require either original or certified hard copies of the below documents to further assess your application:

- Transcript of studies for your Diploma verifying you have completed and your grades

I'm not sure what transcript they are referring to. I just graduated Year 12 so I don't know if that's the diploma?

Thank you!


Hi chenay0123,
 
Please submit an enquiry through AskMonash (monash-ext.custhelp.com/app/ask) and include your VTAC ID number, full name, date of birth and contact details. A staff member will be able to follow up with your enquiry.

Hello ,

I would like to know about transfers to Monash Uni Clayton if I am coming from another uni like RMIT
If I was to study applied sciences at RMIT , what streams would  i take at rmit ?? (appplied chem or applied science) to be able to transfer to Monash science
If we didnt get any credit would i still be able to trasnfer ?? we just need that 60% pass right??
Would mid year transfers or end years transfers be available ??

Thank you for any help

Hi there,
   I am interested in doing Biomedical Science at Monash this year. If I have an planning to do graduate medicine in the future, what electives do you guys recommend me to do? From the monash website I know that I can only choose electives starting with the prefixes BCH, BME, DEV, GEN, HUP, IMM, MIC, MIS, PHA and PHY. From the atar notes forum, I know that CHM 1011 and CHM 1022 is recommended. Is there any other electives that are popular among aspiring graduate medical students?
2. Do biomedical students have to take electives  ( Monash)?
3.   Can biomedical students major/ minor in certain units

Looking forward to hearing from you soon! Thanks! :)

Hi guys,

I don't know if this is the right thread to post this, but I plan on doing medicine in the near future. However, as UMAT didnt work out, I have chosen to do Monash biomed (for which I received a 1st round offer). I dont know if the new pathway into med from biomed is underway yet, but i just wanted to know how hard one would gage it to be. I've been told by many that it is extremely competitive (which i understand), but others have gone as far as saying that the environment is sometimes "toxic". Whilst I would like to go to Monash (as its a v.good uni and close to home), I also just want to put myself in a position where I can achieve my dream of medicine (hard, I know). I also received an offer from UTAS for medical research which is apparently less competitive, but i'll have to sit the dreaded UMAT again. Should I consider this pathway? How have you guys found Monash biomed and what path would you recommend?

Thanks!

Hi Nathan,
 
You're encouraged to choose the stream of most interest to you. Students can apply to transfer from another university’s science-related degree into Monash Science. Entry will be determined by a number of factors, including your Year 12 result, the grades achieved in your tertiary study (60% or higher), and the duration of that study.
Mid-year entry is usually available for our Bachelor of Science, although this is most suitable if you have commenced tertiary studies in Science. Selection is a competitive process and will be based on academic performance.

Hi iTry,
 
First up, congratulations on completing year 12 and receiving an offer for the Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Monash.
 
Here's some thoughts for you from our team:

Biomedical Science pathway into Medicine is currently in place and is the recommended pathway into the graduate-entry medicine course at Monash University. It is definitely very competitive to enter a graduate-entry medicine program, although we reserve 50 places in this course for Monash Biomedical Science graduates only, and the remaining 25 places for Monash graduates from specified degrees only.

As a guide, students who applied in 2016 for the 2018 intake through the Biomedical Science pathway required a clearly in Average Mark (AM) of 79.89, taken from all year 1 and 2 Bachelor of Biomedical Science core units, to be offered the opportunity to undertake an interview and Situational Judgement Test (SJT) for the graduate-entry medicine course.

On the other hand, the clearly in WAM for interviews for applicants who applied in 2016 for the 2017 intake into the graduate entry medicine program was 81.39. This included applicants who had completed their Biomedical Science, Physiotherapy, Pharmacy or Science degree at Monash University and were competing for one of 25 places in the course.
Hope this helps a little with your decision.  :)

Hi Esthertham,

Students who are studying the Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Monash will need to successfully complete all the core Biomedical Science units to be eligible to apply for our graduate-entry medical program. Only results from these core units will be used to calculate the Average Mark (AM) to rank applicants for an interview through the Biomedical Science pathway. Your elective unit choice will not influence your eligibility for an interview under this pathway.
 
However, applicants applying for the additional 25 places in the graduate-entry medicine program will have their Weighted Average Mark (WAM) applied across units completed to rank students for an interview. Thus the results you achieve in your elective units will be taken into consideration.
 
You can read more about the Biomedical Science pathway into medicine and the requirements at: http://med.monash.edu.au/medicine/admissions/grad-entry/bms-pathway-applications.html
 
As part of the course structure of the Bachelor of Biomedical Science at Monash University, all biomedical science students will have room to choose up to 48 credit points of electives (8 standard units). You can choose further units in a biomedical science related discipline, or units from other faculties. You can even choose to focus all your electives in certain disciplines if you wish (speak to a course advisor about this).

Hope this helps!  :)

Sorry but what do you mean by this ?

, although this is most suitable if you have commenced tertiary studies in Science. Se


Does this mean If I start my first year with a science course?
So mid year transfer wont look at my yr12 results ?

And thank you for the info before .

Yes, definitely. For example, many students who wish to continue their VCE/ high school equivalent LOTE language, can generally get into level 2 language units straight away, There's no problem if you've satisfied the pre-reqs. Just talk to your managing faculty student services to confirm this (just in case) and enrol you into the one you want! :)

Hi,

I am interested in the Bachelor of Radiography and Medical Imaging Degree (Honours) at Monash and was wondering that if I was unable to obtain a position in the course, due to extensive number of applications, what other courses could I do which are similar to the course in terms of units in order to transfer to the course mid-year? Would the 'Bachelor of Science' at Monash be okay?

Thanks

Hi Nathan,

Most subjects in the Bachelor of Science will require you to have studied units in sequential order. As such, your units from RMIT will need to be assessed by the faculty to determine the equivalency to our first semester units.
 
Secondly, as you will have commenced tertiary studies, which is more recent than your year 12 results, they will be considered in conjunction with your Year 12 results.

Hope this clarifies it a little more for you :)


Sorry but what do you mean by this ?

Hi upandgo,
 
You can definitely study level 2 units in first year if your course structure permits and the prerequisites have been met. If you have any questions regarding unit selection, speak with your faculty student services.
