2018 Future Students – Just received an offer for UNSW Medicine? Find out more here…

Congratulations on making it into medicine at UNSW for 2018. All your hard work has paid off and we hope that you are brimming with excitement to get started.

Before you get started though, keep reading below to find out about how you can get involved with the medicine community before day 1, and what you can expect from the first few weeks!.

Get Connected!

Medsoc is the official student-run body that represents all students studying medicine at UNSW. We look forward to working with you to enrich and improve your experience whilst studying. The easiest way that you can get involved and stay up to date is by liking the UNSW MedSoc Facebook Page and by joining the new UNSW Medicine Class of 2023 Facebook Page.

Are you an international student? We’re so glad that you’ve come all this way to study with us! Join the UNSW International Medical Students Facebook Page to get connected with other international students.

If you have any questions for Medsoc, you can contact the First Year Representatives (Savanna and Munya) at year1@medsoc.org.au. They’d love to hear from you!

What To Expect When Starting Medicine…

You’ll soon find out that despite the stereotypes, medical students DO NOT spend all day, every day studying. Medsoc can become the key to a whole new side of your social life with student-led charity events, memorable (and otherwise…) pub-crawls, mentoring sessions, exam revision nights or even the hilarious Med Revue. So prepare for six years of working hard and playing harder!

To get the socialising started, there are a number of events that will happen in the first few weeks:


A must-attend event in the MedSoc calendar, just ask any current student and they’ll agree that MedCamp was one of their best experiences! With this year’s theme of “parathyroid activity”, friendships and memories will be formed that’ll last a lifetime. More info at: UNSW Medicine Class of 2023 Facebook Page

Peer Mentoring

Peer mentoring is an annual program run by UNSW MedSoc designed to academically, socially and physically orient first year students. It is one of the funnest (and lit-test) programs, where you’ll be able to form tight friendships with both other first years, and older years too. Come along to our “Meet the Mentors Night”, at 5:30pm on the 26th of February (first day of uni!) for some fun games and opportunities to mingle.
