WSU | Rural Entry Admission Scheme




The Rural Entry Admission Scheme (REAS) is an initiative to promote Medicine to applicants with an extensive rural background who are able to demonstrate and meet rurality and other assessed factors. Applicants who enter the Joint Program in Medicine through the REAS, study the same program as students who apply and enter through the General Applicant process.

Applicants must choose to apply through the REAS or through the General Applicant process, you cannot apply for both.

Western offers a minimum of 15 places specifically for REAS students to study medicine.




REAS applicants must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident (New Zealand citizens are not eligible to apply via this scheme). The pathway is open to current school leavers, non-current school leavers and graduates.

Rural Entry Admission Scheme applicants require a Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) or equivalent of 91.5.




You must sit UCAT ANZ in the current application year. Submit your application through the Universities Admission Centre and include 725505 Doctor of Medicine as a preference.
