Chancellor's Scholarships

admissions_414075982720x480

Medical schools love to attract TWO groups of students: they pull out the red carpet for (a) Rural students and (b) Very high ATAR students. Why? The real reason (not the one stated on their websites) is that the universities benefit directly and indirectly.

If they recruit rural students, universities get significantly more funding from the government than they would if they recruit city students.

If they recruit very high ATAR students, they benefit in many ways. First, their university ranking will go up: and universities will do anything to improve their ranking. There is tremendous competition between universities to attract high achieving students, top quality staff, more government funding etc. Second, such students are likely to make significant contributions to their field of endeavours and gain publicity. The university can bask in the associated glory claiming how great their alumni are. Third, such students are also likely to go on to become successful/wealthy and will donate money. Universities get billions of dollars in endowments from past students.

Therefore at the time of ATAR results release, there is a mad scramble among universities to attract perfect ATAR students. We have heard of some universities resorting to unethical strategies by telling students that unless they put their university as the first preference, they will not get the scholarship. This is untrue and blatantly false.

You can accept the Chancellor's Scholarship and reject it later. For example, you can accept the Melbourne or Sydney university chancellor's scholarship and reject it, if you are able to gain your higher preference offer of medicine from Monash or UNSW. Many students say that they would have saved themselves a lot of stress if they had known this.

The message? Don’t get sucked into changing your preferences and putting the University of Melbourne or University of Sydney as your first preference if they are not (universities may coerce you to do this).

Since Melbourne and Sydney universities went to graduate entry for medicine, they lost most of the high ATAR students to their competitor universities which offer school leaver entry for medicine. Hence they are resorting to scaremongering and strong arm tactics to make you change your preferences. All you need to have done is list the University of Sydney/Melbourne as one of your preferences.
