UMAT is developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) on behalf of the UMAT Consortium universities. The test is used specifically to assist with the selection of students into the medicine, dentistry and health science degree programs at undergraduate level at the universities listed on this website.

UMAT scores can be used for admission to any of the UMAT Consortium universities ONLY in the year following the test. For example, results from UMAT2015 can be used for undergraduate medicine or health science courses beginning in 2016 but NOT 2017. Do not register for UMAT2015 unless you are planning to apply for a course commencing in 2016 AND you meet the eligibility criteria specified in the UMAT2015 Information Booklet.


UMAT2016 registrations will open in early December 2015.
