Posted: December 05, 2021

Dear Careers Adviser and Year Coordinators

Sign up for UCAT NIE Newsletters (Students)


In this newsletter, we would like to provide you and your students with information regarding the UCAT ANZ 2022 timeline, as well as recommendations regarding UCAT preparation.

If the student is considering a career in medicine or dentistry, they will need to sit a compulsory entry exam known as the UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) before they can apply for relevant placements in the aforementioned fields of study within the most universities. 

Please note, that some pathways into medicine, dentistry, and clinical sciences may not require the UCAT ANZ. For details candidates should refer to the websites of the universities to which they intend to apply.

Universities and the UCAT Requirements

For those who will sit UCAT this or next year, consistent exam preparation is recommended.

If you choose to, you can inform your students about the important upcoming UCAT 2022 dates as well as available NIE UCAT and Medical Interview preparation resources and services by publishing the following information in your school newsletter or forwarding this email to the relevant students.

Considering Career in Medicine or Dentistry?
