Is studying medicine at Monash more prestigious than Melbourne? Is studying medicine at USyd more prestigious than UNSW? And in the end, does it really matter?University rankings and prestige: how much do they matter for studying medicine?Prestige, prestige, prestige. It’s a battle cry often heard echoing from the halls of the oldest universities and repeated with an unwavering insistence of certain parents that: ‘my son will only obtain his the degree from The University of…’ (Well, we don’t need to name names here..)When selecting the university with the right medicine course for you, we would suggest that there are other factors...

Just as you would go to Wiki on the internet to obtain unbiased information on a topic, you have come to the right place to obtain unbiased information regarding medical school rankings in Australia and New Zealand.  The reputation and prestige of the University is not as important in Australia in general, as in the USA.

The rest of the places are generally for...
