Bachelor of Clinical Sciences (articulating with Flinders University’s Northern Territory Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery)
In partnership with Flinders University, Charles Darwin University will offer a total of 12 Commonwealth-Supported places in 2014 in a pre-medicine pathway leading to a place in Flinders University’s Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery in 2016. This group will include up to 2 places for Indigenous students.
Entry is available to applicants who are eligible to compete in the Year 12 sub quota at CDU. Currently, applicants who hold a Year 12 qualification and have studied at higher education for one year or less are eligible to compete in the Year 12 sub quota.
Successful applicants are initially admitted to a Bachelor of Clinical Sciences program. Those who pass all units in the first two years of this program and maintain an overall Credit-average (Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.0) may then continue into the 4 year Flinders medical program (BMBS) in a Northern Territory Government supported place in 2016. After a total of 3 years successful students will be awarded the degree of Bachelor of Clinical Sciences by Charles Darwin University and after a total of 6 years they will be awarded a Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery by Flinders University through its Northern Territory Medical Program.
Selection will be based on:
* Performance in UMAT;
* Academic Performance in Year 12 (ATAR (Formerly TER) or equivalent).
In ranking applicants, performance in Year 12 (ATAR or equivalent) will contribute 90% to a selection score; and a UMAT‑derived score will contribute 10%.
Prerequisites: None. Although it is recommended that intending applicants undertake Chemistry, Physics or Biology at Year 12 level.
Applications for entry should be submitted to the SA Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC) by Monday 2rd December 2013. Applicants will be asked to enter their UMAT identification number when they lodge their application on SATAC’s UniWeb.
In calculation of the ATAR, the University assigns bonus points to students from Northern Territory high schools.
The combined degree pathway for Year 12 students is not available to international applicants.
