A word of caution from NIE!
Monash University allows very little time between the time students are invited for interviews and the actual dates of the interview. The timeframe is especially tight for interstate and NZ applicants. Therefore NIE highly advises that you do not wait around until you have received an interview before you start your preparation. Prepare early and avoid unnecessary risks. Also, remember that Monash will interview you only ONCE. Meaning that if you underperform at your interview, your future chances of getting into Monash medicine will be also be undermined.

Interview: Makes up 33% of the total admission score
Interviews will be held online via Zoom. Monash uses the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) for the selection of students. MMI Stations comprise a series of scenarios and associated questions focusing on an applicant’s:
The MMI consists of eight sequential interview 'stations'. At each station, the applicant will be interviewed for eight minutes followed by two minutes for scoring and changeover (ie ten minutes per station) with a 'circuit’ taking 90-100 minutes to complete.
Applicants will be invited (via email) to attend the MMI which, depending on government restrictions at the time, will be either face to face or online. Only a set number of applicants will be invited for an interview and this selection will be based on a ranking of their UCAT and aggregate score. Only those applicants who attend an interview will remain in the final ranked list to be eligible for a place. All applicants applying for this course are only allowed to attend the interview once. Those who are re-applying for this course and have previously attended the interview for this course are not required to attend the interview again.
