The University of Notre Dame (Sydney)

Keep up to date with Graduate Medicine Informant on social media!

The University of Notre Dame (Sydney) is one of two campuses of The University of Notre Dame Australia (UNDA) offering medical degrees (along with its sister campus in Fremantle). 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 Sydney (UNDS) and Fremantle (UNDF) 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.

Required Documentation

The University of Notre Dame Sydney (and Fremantle) 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 [1].
