The University of Melbourne & Ors - Authorisations - A91144 & A91145 & A91178

Summary

On 19 June 2009, the University of Melbourne, on behalf of the Graduate Australian Medical School Admission Test Consortium (the Consortium), applied for authorisation for an agreement to abide by the following two Policies adopted by the Consortium which govern the selection of applicants to graduate entry medical schools in Australia.

1. The Preference Policy

Under the Preference Policy, applicants submit a single application to the Graduate Australian Medical Schools Admission Centre, listing in order of preference the medical schools to which they wish to apply. The number of preferences is set out in the current Admission Guide (3 for students commencing in 2010). Where an applicant is not selected for an interview the school must pass the application to that applicant's next preference school.

2. The One Interview Policy

Under the One Interview Policy, medical school applicants will receive only one offer for an interview. The interview will be conducted by the medical school for which the applicant has given the highest preference. Interviews are awarded based upon a selection process used by each school. An applicant whose ranking is not high enough for them to be offered an interview at their first preference medical school or applicants interviewed but not selected are passed onto the applicant's next preferred medical school.

A copy of the application and submission are available by following the links below.

On 26 November 2009, the ACCC released a determination granting authorisation to the Consortium for five years.
