There is a special sub-quota of graduate places for those applicants who fit the criteria as rural applicants.

An applicant is eligible for consideration as a rural origin applicant if their principal home address has been in an Australian Standard Geographical Remoteness Area (ASGC-RA 2011) 2-5 for any 5 years consecutive or at least 10 years cumulatively.  A search engine for towns in areas can be found here.

Only Rural applicants to the DMD need to submit the Rural Eligibility form (below).  Rural applicants to the MD are asked about their rurality via the GEMSAS application process. 

2017 applications for 2018 entry to the DMD will open 1 March 2017 and will close 31 May 2017.  Applications for 2018 entry to the MD will open and close in accordance with the GEMSAS timeline.
