If you already attended our UMAT workshop, we would kindly appreciate if you could Click here to submit your feedback about your experience on the day!

Very thorough explanations of the pattern questions in section 3 helped me solve the questions much faster. Looking at the questions and answers first in section 1 and section 2. Interview training was extremely beneficial (would definitely without a doubt come to NIE for training if offered an interview). Very friendly teachers who knew exactly what they were talking about and had genuine interest in hoping the students score well.

Thank you for the workshop yesterday. I am so glad I went. Was a great eye-opener for me. I am in year 11 now, should I come to your next workshop again?

The workshop was fun, and it was nice to have three different teachers, I never got bored and the day went very fast. I signed up my younger son for your Sydney June workshop. Thanks again!

The talks about strategy and how to approach questions, especially construct 3 techniques and also the psychology behind construct 2.

I wish I knew about your organisation last year, extremely satisfied with what I got out of the day.

The mock exam was very beneficial as you are able to experience what an actual UMAT is like. However, I also found the feedback during the practical activities (interviews and scenarios) very helpful.

Hi NIE, I just would like to say thank you to Zob, Luan and Sasha for providing me with this learning opportunity. I was going to give up on UMAT as after completing my ACER booklets I felt like there is no way I can get a good score in the UMAT, now I actually believe I am going to be just fine :) Thank you.

I did UMAT last year and scored very low. After attending your workshop this year, I felt that your mock test paper was just as difficult if not more. It was fantastic to have very similar questions in your practice UMAT test as the questions I had in last year's UMAT. I felt like I sat UMAT all over again, and can really see now the areas where I am struggling and require improvement. 

Thank you to all of the teachers at the workshop who stayed behind answering my questions, I did not realise that I took over an hour of your time. Thank you!

Great workshop, very beneficial, gave myself a good pat on the back for attending. 

I have been to all your workshops since 2011, and every time I learn something new. My scores in 2011 were around 12th percentile, then they were around 50th last year, and this year I came first in the class for all three sections. I feel very confident to sit the UMAT this year! I appreciate your support and dedication.

Section 1 - clarified some things for me, just need to practice more to get better at it. Section 2 - was very informative, and I thought it was useful to have a Psychology lecturer going over this section, and now that I know the reasoning behind section 2 testing my approach to solving the questions took 360 degree turn. Section 3 - brilliant! I could not even do one question at the beginning of the workshop, now it's my most favourite section of the UMAT. I actually stayed up until 3am doing practice questions for this section after your workshop, very motivated now when I know what I am doing. Thank you to all the teachers.

My friend told me that you can't get ready for UMAT and that it is a general knowledge test. I actually feel relieved that I enrolled into your UMAT training course, otherwise I would have been very angry at myself on the 30th of July this year for listening to my friend. Thanks NIE and the teachers. 

I was warmly surprised when I dropped my daughter off in the morning and saw that this course was run by three teachers in a relatively small group of students. This is very uncommon these days. Great to see that your organisation takes teaching seriously. Money well spent, my daughter was very tired after the workshop, but very happy that she attended.

My eldest son did your course in 2010 and now he is in UNSW doing Medicine, my second son did your course last year and he got accepted into UWS, my daughter did your UMAT course this year and hopefully she is on the way to Med as well. I would like to buy your new 2014 UMAT books though, could you please advise how to get them. Thank you.

Hi everyone! I just wanted to say thank you heaps for the great UMAT preparation course.  I think the test went really well, and I found your practice questions to be very similar and so close to the questions in the test yesterday. With majority of the non-verbal reasoning questions, I almost felt like I have done those questions before, and hence solved them very fast. Your books and the strategies I learned during the workshop helped me immensely.  Once again, thank you so much for everything!
(comment: 31.07.2013, 7.47pm)
Hi . The questions in your books and the timed tests really helped me to get ready for the UMAT today" Thank you for your support, Alex.
(comment: 31.07.2013, 11.02pm)
yey, UMAT is over!!!!!!!!!! Now I can get back to my trials....Amanda, thank you for sending me book 3 on such short notice before the test. i think that's the only section I did really well in, I didn't get a chance to study for anything else, ha-ha. I need to buy your complete course for UMAT next year. 
(comment: 31.07.2013, 7.47pm)
Hi Sasha, my son is very happy with the UMAT yesterday, we are all very anxious to find out what score he will get. As you know our daughter also want to study medicine. I would like for her to take your course in 2014, when can we enrol and buy the 2014 books? Thank you, Suzanna 
(comment: 01.08.2013,11.09am)
Very stressful day once again, but I think I've done well this time much better than last year when I left preparation till the last minute. Thanks heaps for all the strategies you suggested, I think your course is heaps good and relevant for this test.
(comment: 01.08.2013,12.19pm)
All good, thanks for the workshop and the books...I was in your premium course, and I think it is very relevant and helpful for the test preparation.
(comment: 01.08.2013,12.56pm)
Hello NIE. Wooo-hooo, UMAT is over, and I am so glad. I have a good feeling I will get a good score this year again. I missed out on your UMAT interview prep last time and hence didn't get into the uni of my choice.. Will you be taking more students for interview training this year, as I really need to make sure to get a place with you for this year if I do get interview offer. How can I make sure to get a spot with you this year? I attended another course interview workshop last year, and I didn't learn much. I really want to be part of your one-on-one interview training. Can I somehow prebook a spot to make sure I don't miss out?                                     (comment: 01.08.2013,3.41pm)
Thank you to all the NIE tutors, and the books you sent me...your prep course is very good, and like you said attending your UMAT workshop prep day was like to attempt the actual UMAT before the real test...ow it will be a painful waiting game to get the scores (comment: 02.08.2013, 9.11am)

2014 UMAT Courses - Message to Students, Parents, and Teachers

If you, your child, or your student will be sitting UMAT in 2015 or 2016, early test preparation is a must! Strategic and determined students start their UMAT preparation in Years 10 and 11 to ensure they are well-prepared for the test before the final year of school commences. Remember, that in order to be in a competitive position for the university placement, students need to have a high ATAR as well as a sufficient UMAT score. Students should not risk their ATAR by leaving UMAT preparation until year 12. 

GAMSAT Interview Training and Preparation

Sit through a strenuous simulated 3 hour interview with two experienced interviewers followed by a full written and verbal feedback session that covers body language, eye contact, etiquette, posture, animation, grammar, language, vocabulary, pronunciation, annunciation and speech, clothing and presentation, your individual answers to each question asked and personalised hints, tips and strategies.

Why is NIE the best choice for UMAT and GAMSAT Interview Preparation?

NIE is the only UMAT and GAMSAT interview preparation and training organisation in Australia and New Zealand that is managed by the Department of Education and Training registered and accredited teachers. We work closely with UMAT Australia as well as elite VCE training organisations to ensure that our students are well prepared for these critical tests.  

Our reputation and strong relationship with schools and universities is based on the results achieved by our students. No other provider comes close to the NIE preparation courses, its content or success. We challenge you to find a lower priced program that can offer comprehensive hard copy books with brand new practice questions every year, works with smaller class sizes, has been conducting prep since 1999, is partnered with elite tutoring organisations, offers final practice exams as hard if not harder than the real UMAT, and is managed by the Department of Education and Training accredited teachers. We do not market or advertise like others, preferring to let our success stories do the talking. Our students come through word-of-mouth referrals, recommendations by schools, parents and friends of the previously successful UMAT candidates. Do not be fooled into thinking that an online course or a program run by students will be helpful for the UMAT.

There is a reason why we spend thousands of dollars on developing, printing and posting hundreds of book sets each year…because it works! UMAT is a paper test sat at a desk and that is exactly how you should prepare for it.
