MedEntry has a commitment to helping those from disadvantaged and under-serviced backgrounds (such as those of low socio-economic status and those from rural or remote areas) to achieve their goals. We have provided over $1.2 million of scholarships and discounts to such students over the years.

MedEntry offers various discounts: 

  • Group discount. Simply apply as a group of three or more, and all group members will receive a discount of over 30%!

  • Teacher/Principal/Lecturer/Professor discount. This discount is available to students who are nominated by their teacher, principal, professor or lecturer. You will receive $460 off (ie will pay only $230 for the Standard Platinum package).

  • Last year's student discounts. This discount applies to students who enrolled in a MedEntry package in the previous year.

  • Discounts for students who attend our Courses in rural towns and smaller cities such as Wellington, Christchurch, Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, Darwin, Launceston, Wollongong, Dubbo, Geelong, Bendigo, Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, Mackay, Armidale, Sale, Whyalla, Mount Gambier and Alice Springs. These students obtain the extra 5 practice exams (worth $250) free!

  • MedEntry Academic discount. You will receive $460 off (ie will pay only $230 for the Standard Platinum package).

Please read the information below for more information on each of these discounts.

If you are a student who has done MedEntry's 2016 Distance, Platinum or Diamond Package, you will be able to purchase the 2017 Distance, Platinum or Diamond Package at a discounted rate.

To obtain your Last Year's Student Discount:

  • Log into the MedEntry website using the same login information that was used to purchase your previous package
  • Click on the icon that reads MedEntry Shop
  • Choose a package and click proceed
  • Under Additional Discounts, choose Last Year's Student discount
  • Proceed through the checkout process

The discount will automatically be applied to your package cost in your shopping cart.

If you choose to upgrade to one of the promotional products displayed during the checkout process, you will need to re-apply the student discount to that product.

If you wish to apply for this Bursary, please ask your Teacher, Principal, Lecturer or Professor to write to MedEntry with reasons why you should be awarded the scholarship. This must be on a school/university letterhead. The letter must be addressed to the Scholarships Officer at MedEntry.

The reasons why you should be awarded the scholarship may include the following:

  • Academic scholarships, awards or achievements
  • Co-curricular excellence (eg. leadership, public speaking)
  • Any other awards/achievements (eg. Science OlympiaNZ)

Please ask your teacher to mail the documentation to:

Scholarships Officer, MedEntry UMAT Prep, PO Box 445, Fawkner, Vic 3060, Australia.

Note:

  • only five students per university and one student per school is eligible to obtain this Bursary.
  • Generic letters of support addressed as "To whom it may concern" will not be considered.
  • This discount cannot be obtained retrospectively (i.e. after the student has enrolled and paid).
  • The bursary applies to the Platinum package only.

If you are to be awarded a bursary, MedEntry will provide you with a unique discount code, which can be used on the website to access the package at a discounted rate (65% off).

MedEntry recognises that students from rural and remote areas face special difficulties in accessing services.

To help redress this, MedEntry offers workshops in Wellington, Christchurch, Hamilton, Tauranga, Napier, Mildura, Whyalla, Mount Gambier, Toowoomba, Sale, Armidale, Dubbo, Geelong, Bendigo, Cairns, Townsville, Darwin, Launceston, Wollongong, Dubbo, Rockhampton, Mackay, Armadale and Alice Springs. 

These students also obtain the extra 5 practice exams (worth $250) free!. Please note that this offer is only available to students who attend the workshops in the cities above, not just by virtue of living in those cities; for example, someone who lives in Hamilton but attends the course in Auckland would not be eligible. To access these 5 extra practice exams, please see the lecturer during the workshop.

If there is sufficient demand, MedEntry will run workshops in other rural, remote and regional areas. Please contact us with your needs.

MedEntry does not believe in 'two year deals' for several reasons:

  • A one year program is sufficient if you are in First year at university. We believe in the efficacy of our program.
  • If you are in Year 13, we strongly recommend you do not purchase a two year program and lock yourself in.
  • We are so confident in the quality of our services that we know you will come back to us in the event that you need to re-enrol in a UMAT course.

Note that if you wish to re-enrol in a MedEntry course for another year, we offer a substantially discounted price for last year's students.

Access to MedEntry's materials is from the date of purchase through until the UMAT in late July. If you enrol in early August (straight after the UMAT) when you are in Year 13, you will have access to the materials while you are in both Year 13 and First year university.

You must use the same username and password that you used in the previous year. Please contact us if you cannot remember your details.

This discount is available for students who demonstrate outstanding nationwide or international achievement in academic or intellectual endeavours. Examples include: Academic scholarship for study at Auckland or Otago university; full academic scholarship to private schools; participation in Science OlympiaNZ (Chemistry/Biology/Mathematics Olympiad); national debating/public speaking awards; ICAS medals or High Distinctions.

To apply for this award, please send your letter to: Scholarships Officer, MedEntry UMAT Prep, PO Box 445, Fawkner, Vic 3060, Australia. Evidence of the achievement(s) must be provided. If successful, you will be notified within two days of receiving your letter.

Note:

  • School-based awards or awards for community involvement/sporting/leadership/cultural/musical achievement will NOT be accepted for this discount. 
  • This discount cannot be obtained retrospectively (i.e. after the student has enrolled and paid).
  • The discount applies to the Platinum package only.
