Admissions FAQ

Can I apply for part-time and change to full-time later (and vice versa)?

Graduate Certificate of Perioperative Medicine

Unfortunately, no. Due to unit scheduling and the short course duration, students can study either full-time (available semester 1 only) or part-time (available semester 1 and 2) at the time of applying.

Master of Perioperative Medicine

Yes, subject to unit availability and course progression. Please contact us for more information. If you are unsure of your ability to devote time to study, students are encouraged to begin part-time.

Can I apply for either course if I have a Bachelor of Science?

Unfortunately, no. The academic entry requirement is a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Science (MBBS) or Doctor of Medicine (MD). You are welcome to apply when you meet this (and other) admission requirements.

What is meant by ‘2 years of clinical hospital medicine experience’?

Students need 2 years of clinical hospital medicine before being able to apply for the Graduate Certificate or Master of Medicine. For example, if a student graduates from a MBBS in November 2020 they are eligible to apply from the 2023 calendar year onward if they have continued with postgraduate medical trainee and placements during those two years. As the Master of Medicine program culminates in the student determining and submitting a capstone project, students need this experience to get the most out of the project.

If I can’t find a copy of my MBBS testamur/academic transcript, can I provide a Fellowship Certificate instead?

Unfortunately, not. As part of the Admissions Policy you must provide a copy of your MBBS testamur and academic transcript (list of results).

How do I pay for the course and do I have to pay all at once?

Fees are charged per unit/s enrolled each semester. Students can pay fees each semester or full calendar year of enrolment. Statements are issued from 4+ weeks prior to semester commencement. The Monash Fees Department manages all student Fees. For further information and contact details please visit

How do I receive my fee statement (invoice)?

This is accessed through your Monash WES (Web Enrolment System) account or by contacting the Monash Fees Department.

What is the refund policy?

Enrolled students have until the census date at the beginning of each semester to withdraw from unit/s without financial and/or academic penalty (student amenity fees may still apply). The census date is when the University finalises your enrolment. If you withdraw after the census date you forfeit paid fees and are likely to incur an academic penalty.
