Changes to Residency Status

Places in the MD and DMD are subject to quotas.  If you have applied or are intending to apply for Australian Permanent Residency or Citizenship, please be aware of the following implications for your application:

  • If you receive an offer for an International place and there is a change to your Residency status before you commence, your offer will lapse.  You will need to re-apply the following year for a Domestic place.
  • If your residency status changes after you have commenced in the MD or DMD, you cannot be guaranteed a Domestic place in that course.  If a Domestic place were not available you would be able to complete the course but would be subject to International fees.
