The UCAT Consortium
From 2019, for university entry in 2020, the UMAT Consortium of universities have made the decision to replace the UMAT test previously used by our consortium member universities, with the UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test). To reflect this change we will informally be known as the UCAT ANZ Consortium and will oversee the delivery of the new test in Australia and New Zealand.
The UCAT ANZ Consortium is part of a wider collaboration with a similar group of leading UK universities (currently known internationally in the field of medical and dental admissions as the UKCAT Consortium). The UKCAT Consortium is a charity and limited company managed by a Consortium of UK Universities which require the test for entry to their medical/dental/clinical sciences courses and programmes.
We are excited to develop this international collaboration, and as a group we are committed to fairness and equity in selection to medicine, dentistry and the clinical sciences.
Collectively our aims are to:
achieve greater fairness in selection by helping schools discriminate between candidates with equivalent qualifications
widen participation in medical, dental and clinical sciences training of under-represented social groups
identify the characteristics in applicants which will make them good dentists, doctors and clinicians
We partner with Pearson VUE to deliver our test on an annual basis.
