You will be provided with more information about security and health requirements after enrolling in the relevant units that these relate to.
If you were not born in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa or United States of America, you are required to meet the English Language Proficiency requirements set by the University.
Applicants are required to provide evidence of completion within the last 5 years of:
- a secondary qualification (Year 11 and 12, or equivalent), or
bachelor level qualification study for a period of at least 2 years fulltime with a minimum overall GPA of 4.0
completed within Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, South Africa, Ireland, or United states of America, which will meet the English proficiency.
If you do not satisfy any of the above you will need to undertake an English language proficiency test and achieve the following scores as below:
an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic) overall band score of at least 6.0 overall with a minimum 6.0 for Reading and Writing and 6.0 for Speaking and Listening, or
an Occupational English Test with Grades A or B only in each of the four components.
English test results remain valid for no more than two years between final examination date and the date of commencement of study, and must appear on a single result certificate.
Each student will be assessed individually.
Years 2 and 3 of the Medical Science course include work placement. Students must satisfy specific pre-clinical safety and security requirements prior to each placement, including a clear criminal record check, and must disclose any condition that may put themselves or the public at significant risk whilst on placement. Students are required to meet all mandatory requirements to attend work placements. Students who have a criminal history check disclosure prior to commencing the course or recorded in the duration of the course are required to have their fitness for placement assessed on a case by case basis by the University or in conjunction with the placement provider or State Health Department (as appropriate). Where a student has a criminal history check prior to enrolment in the course, the student may be required to apply for clearance through the applicable State Health Department to determine fitness for placement prior to enrolment in the course.
A student may be declared ineligible for placement based on the nature of the criminal history disclosure, the inability to perform required tasks, or if the student may be determined a risk to clients, staff or other stakeholders. A student may be determined ineligible for placement if the placement site is unable to work with the constraints of any conditions or work modifications placement upon the placement provider by the State Health Department or assessment unit within a private organisation. If conditions imposed upon the placement are too restrictive for placement sites within the current offer round, the student may be determined as not fit for placement and is at risk of the University terminating the enrolment in the course.
Years 2 and 3 of the Medical Science course include work placement. Students must satisfy specific pre-placement health and safety checks prior to each placement and must disclose any condition that may put themselves or the public at significant risk whilst on placement. During placement, students will be working in pathology laboratories, hospitals, clinics, or research laboratories. Students are required to ensure that all immunisations as per requirements of the placement provider are completed before they proceed on work placement.Assumed Knowledge
