Which universities use the UMAT as part of their selection criteria for medicine courses?

According to the official ACER website, the following universities require satisfactory completion of the UMAT as part of their selection criteria for students who are seeking to gain entry into undergraduate medicine and health science courses. There are also some universities which use the UMAT as part of their graduate entry programmes.

For all of the following universities, performance on the UMAT will not be the only requirement to gain entry, but for most of these universities it will be the first criterion that students need to satisfy to become an eligible applicant. Students should check each university’s individual website for their specific selection criteria. It will often be a combination of UMAT, performance in an interview i.e MMI, and ATAR score to gain entry, but there may be other requirements. Further, it is important to note that universities may weight each of these selection criteria differently.

As you can see, it is absolutely essential that you perform to your best on the UMAT exam in order to gain entry into your preferred undergraduate medicine or health science course. Without satisfactory completion of the UMAT, your ATAR score (no matter how high) will not help you to gain entry into these courses.  Further, although  the UMAT is primarily used to select applicants for undergraduate medical courses, as noted above, it is also used for some graduate entry medical programs offered by select universities.

For more detailed information and approximate weightings of ATAR and UMAT scores used by each university, MedEntry students should see the University Admissions guide on the LMS. MedEntry UMAT preparation can also assist students in completing their written applications for specific universities.
