Pre-Admission Medical Exam

All admitted students (excluding non-graduating students) are required to undergo a pre-admission medical examination prior to enrolment. The university reserves the right to refuse your admission should you decide to decline this process.

If you are an undergraduate student entering the field of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy or Dentistry, kindly note that there are additional screenings and immunisation requirements. Please refer to your respective Faculty or School for further information and datelines for such screenings.

You are also requested to bring your medical examination form (with Part I completed) on the day of your appointment. Please select the form based on the status of your university acceptance.

Medical examinations may be conducted by the University Health Centre or by a private registered health physician. Please note the following processes when selecting either option.
