Simulated UMAT Day Workshop

Are you in year 10, 11 or 12 and considering career in medicine, dentistry, or optometry?

Due to popular demand ‘The Simulated UMAT Day" is on again. Please note, places for this event are strictly limited and registration is required. Click here to register. 

This event will be conducted by the National Institute of Education, the only UMAT preparation organisation that uses teachers accredited by the Department of Education and Training to prepare students for this critical test.

Our workshops are designed to cover every section, the various types of UMAT-style questions to be encountered and how to tackle them, and then to check where you are at with respect to UMAT-specific study, throwing a full-blown UMAT NIE practice test at you. How will you fare? How have you been going? Which UMAT style questions still need work?

In the intensive one day course you will spend time with our teachers as they go through Logical Reasoning, Understanding People and Non-verbal Reasoning sections.

Just after lunch comes the challenge - a sitting of the UMAT under strict UMAT conditions, for the full three hours. Are you ready for the big day yet? 

A post-test short breath-catching break is then allowed, just prior to our teachers going over the exam with you. Worked answers are elucidated, misunderstandings cleared up.

Our face-to-face UMAT workshop is an excellent chance for you to assess yourself (while being assessed!) and discover what areas need the most attention.

Make sure you take the opportunity to meet our expert teachers and discuss the UMAT or which UMAT preparation course is best for you.

  • Workshop Duration : 9am - 5.30pm. Lunch and refreshments provided.
  • Summary of Workshop Contents: Arrivals and meeting the teachers, introduction to UMAT and career in Health, UMAT Logical Reasoning and Problem Solving tutorial, UMAT Understanding People tutorial, UMAT Non-verbal Reasoning Tutorial, UMAT Medical Interviews Presentation and Simulation: MMI and Structured Panel. Full UMAT trial test under exam conditions, marking session and trial test feedback, questions from students session.  
  • Cost: $289.

Note: This workshop is already included in the comprehensive UMAT Preparation Platinum, Platinum Plus, Premium and Premium Plus programs. Do not enrol into Simulated UMAT Day workshop if you are already enrolled into one of the above courses. However, if you wish to improve and strengthen your UMAT skills, then you might like to consider enrolling into Simulated UMAT Day, recap the workshop content and attempt additional completely new UMAT NIE Trial Test. If you do decide to repeat the workshop, please do not forget to advise us that you will need a different test paper on the day to the one you already attempted earlier.
