Medical School Rankings New Zealand

The UMAT is sat by students seeking entry into Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy or Pharmacy at an undergraduate level. A typical undergraduate program will last for 5-6 years and permits entry for students who have just completed secondary school. On the other hand there are graduate pathways that often take longer and require bachelor degree qualifications of a certain level before entering one of the programs above.

If you are interested in any of the following courses in New Zealand you will be required to sit the UMAT:

Ranking of Australian/New Zealand Medical Schools

The reputation and prestige of the University is not as important in Australia in general as in the USA. In the USA there is a hierarchy of universities with Ivy League Universities such as Harvard and Yale, being miles ahead of the mediocre universities. In Australia however, there is little standard deviation in terms of quality, standard and prestige of the 40 or so universities.

Particularly in the case of Medicine and such Health Science courses, it matters very little which university you go to in Australia. If you are aiming to obtain a degree in engineering, commerce or law, the prestige of the university may mater to some extent (definitely not as much as in the US). If you are a doctor, what patients really care about are your diagnostic skills, bedside manner and so on, not which university their doctor went to, in fact most patients would not even know which university their doctors went to.

However, for those who are interested in having an idea of the university rankings it is provided below, obviously depending on what criteria you use, the ranking is going to vary, therefore it is subjective to some extent. It takes into account the factors such as: meritocracy in selection; difficulty of getting in; graduate outcomes such as: employer satisfaction of graduates, ability of graduates to be able to get into the specialty that they want, graduate salaries etc. Other rankings which take into account the research output of the university is irrelevant to most people in practical terms, therefore this has not been taken into account.

The new medical school (Curtin University) has not yet been ranked since we do not have enough data.
