UCAT and Universities

Which universities require UCAT for 2022 Medical / Dental Entry?

The UCAT ANZ is a compulsory entry requirement for our Australia and New Zealand Consortium universities.  You are required to sit the UCAT ANZ 2021 test (between 1 July and 11 August 2021) if you are intending to apply for entry in 2022 to a relevant course or programme listed below. UCAT ANZ results cannot be carried over from one year to the next.  For example, results from UCAT ANZ 2021 can only be used to apply for courses commencing in 2022.

Some pathways to medicine/dentistry/clinical sciences will not require the UCAT ANZ. For some applicants, a different test may be required. You should always check the entry requirements for each course or programme using the websites of the universities to which you intend to apply before booking a test. 

There are no general exemptions from the test.
