Transfer Request

This category of application is available to Australian and New Zealand citizens and Australian permanent residents only. 

Western Sydney School of Medicine will consider transfer requests from those who are currently (or have previously been) enrolled in a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or equivalent at a university within Australia or New Zealand.

If you have studied medicine at an overseas university, you should apply via the General Applicant pathway or if you are an International Student who is currently (or has previously been) enrolled in a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or equivalent program, you should apply via the International Applicant pathway. 

Transfers between the Western Sydney University and Charles Sturt University Doctor of Medicine programs are not permitted.

The number of transfer applicant places into the Doctor of Medicine (MD) will be determined by the School and subject to current student load. Western Sydney Medicine does not have a specific quota to accommodate transferring students.

How to Apply

Step 1 - Download and complete the Transfer Request Form

Step 2 - Address the Criteria

The School of Medicine will consider the following criteria when assessing transfer requests:

  • Reason(s) for wishing to transfer
  • Academic standing – applicants must be in good academic standing (transcripts must be provided)
  • Agreement of both medical Deans (where applicable)

If the above criteria are assessed favourably, a transfer can be offered. In such circumstances, the student's completed record of study in the program would be assessed to determine which year they will be placed in at Western. Whilst it may be considered, there is no guarantee of academic credit.
