Bond University: Bond University Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine

Location: Gold Coast, QLD

Medical school or program established: 2005

QS subject ranking 2021: 301-450

First year class size in 2020: 131 students

CSP places? No

Tuition Fees:57,240 AUD/Year 

International places? Only through specific Bond University degrees.

Bond University is Australia’s first private not-for-profit university. It offers a BioMedSt/MD (Bachelor of Medical Studies and Doctor of Medicine) medical programme. The BioMedSt degree takes 8 semesters to complete (2 years 8 months due to Bond University’s trimester system) and the MD degree takes 6 semesters to complete (2 years). In total, it takes 4 years and 8 months to complete medical education, which makes it the fastest route to becoming a medical doctor in Australia and New Zealand.

While the idea of a fast-track medical degree might sound very attractive, it should be noted that CSPs are not available for Bond University’s medical programme, meaning that the tuition fees will be very high.

For school leavers, you must have a minimum ATAR of 96, while for graduates, you must have a minimum GPA of 6.0. Based on the academic results, about 50% of the applicants will be invited for psychometric testing that consists of a personality test (170 multiple choice questions, untimed) and an emotional intelligence test (141 multiple choice questions, untimed). Results of the psychometric testing will determine the offer for an MMI. UCAT ANZ score is not required.

It should be noted that for graduates and international applicants, only those eligible to graduate from Bond University’s Bachelor of Biomedical Science (pre-health professional major), Master of Occupational Therapy, Doctor of Physiotherapy, or Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice and meeting the minimum required GPA will be considered for entry. Successful applicants will commence in Year 2 of the BMedSt degree.

All applicants (undergraduate and graduate) need to apply by completing the application form and starting admission process by clicking here to submit details to us through our Whatsapp Admission processing line.
