Entry into undergraduate medicine degrees is highly competitive. Take the following steps to make sure your application is considered.

  1. Register for the Undergraduate Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT). Important dates are coming up:
    Booking deadline – 17 May 2023
    Final late booking deadline (late fee applies) – 5 June 2023
    Testing begins – 3 July 2023
  2. Complete your UAC application by midnight 29 September 2023 – the application processing fee increases after this date.
  3. Apply directly to each university’s medicine faculty (most require this). Address any extra requirements specified by each uni.
  4. If you’re invited, attend an interview/assessment. Most unis will use UCAT results to select applicants for interview.
