Workshop date - Saturday 7 February 2015
Where: University of Queensland - St Lucia Campus

Students in Years 10, 11 or 12 considering a career in medicine, dentistry, or optometry, need to sit a compulsory entry exam known as UMAT (Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test) before they can apply for relevant placements in the above fields with universities.

The National Institute of Education (NIE) will be conducting UMAT 2015 preparation workshop on Saturday 7 of February 2015.

While the Simulated UMAT Day is extremely beneficial for Year 12 students, who will be attempting the real UMAT on the 29 July 2015, this workshop is also highly recommended to anyone in years 10 - 11 and aiming for a head start in UMAT preparation.

Places for this event are strictly limited and registration is required. All details are available via

The workshop includes an overview of the entire UMAT process - exam, scores, standardising, applications, university requirements, interviews, past experiences, professional advice, performance expectations, and more. Each student is individually assessed and fine-tuned for peak performance. Strategic problem solving and tuition in each of the three UMAT constructs. The workshop will be conducted by two highly experienced and expert lecturers who will define and explain each UMAT construct. A full practice test conducted under exam conditions, followed by a feedback session. This intense full day preparation workshop allows students to identify and explore their true strengths and weaknesses.

Cost: $249 (Food and refreshments will be provided)
