lol im an undergrad grr...lol, thx for the info, i was inquiring because i actually know somebody that transfered from a canadian university to NSW medicine after her first semester in university.
the unsw website states transfers admissions are based 50/50 on tertiary gpa AND HSC (high school certificate). so your having completed semester at uni won't eliminate being ranked on high school performance.Hi SimC. I'm a canadian citizen who transferred to UNSW med after 3 semesters at University of Alberta. (I had a gpa of 8.4/9) -- back when U of A had a 9 point system, which equated roughly to 99.50 UAI.
the UNSW website also states the only graduate stream is their new one which only considers high achieving students in the UNSW BMedSci that complete an honours year. from my knowledge, prior to this, they haven't allowed any grad. of course, i have not been following it for the past 6 years, so they could have taken them years ago and there are still trickinling through the system. [/QUOTE]And yes, to answer your question, we do have a few students with graduate degress in our program.
i think UNSW is pretty intent on remaining undergrad entry. there are now 3 grad entry schools in NSW, 4 if you count UNSW's new stream, and there are now 3 undergrad entry. i'm sure they'd like to keep a nice balance rather than shifting entirely to one type of entry. there are plenty of people that want to ensure the undergrad entry options remains for those students are certain of their goals in high school.As far as I know, it's still a 6 year undergraduate program, but I'm not sure how long thats going to stay for, given that they've just changed to a PBL based learning system.
