The University of Notre Dame (Fremantle) is one of two campuses of The University of Notre Dame Australia (UNDA) offering medical degrees (along with its sister campus in Sydney). UNDA is a private Catholic university established in 1989 which is unrelated to its more well-known namesake in Indiana, The University of Notre Dame. Whilst the Fremantle (UNDF) and Sydney (UNDS) campuses are technically part of the same university, they are listed on this site separately since they have historically had differing admissions criteria and application processes and are preferenced separately for the purposes of GEMSAS.

Applicants with higher degrees (Masters by coursework or research, or Doctorate) are granted "additional points" during the scoring of the SOMAF .
From the GEMSAS 2015-16 Admissions Guide:
In the scoring of the Notre Dame Portfolio, additional points may be given to:
- Applicants with a completed higher degree of a PhD or Masters by research/coursework. Conferral of the higher degree must have occurred before the application closing date to be deemed eligible. Embedded combined undergraduate and master’s degrees will not be awarded bonus points.
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants who apply through the general process.
- Applicants who have lived in an ASGC-RA 2 to 5 area.
The University of Notre Dame Fremantle (and Sydney) requires the submission of a School of Medicine Application Form (SOMAF) in addition to the normal application form. The SOMAF is designed to assess "personal qualities and motivation to study medicine" and makes up a component of the overall score each application is allocated .
