UCAT – University Clinical Aptitude Test

University Clinical Aptitude Test for Australia and New Zealand (UCAT ANZ)

The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is an admissions test used by the UCAT ANZ Consortium of universities in Australia and New Zealand for their medical, dental and clinical science degree programmes.

The UCAT ANZ test will replace the UMAT (Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test) from 2019 (for university entry in 2020).

The test helps universities to select applicants with the most appropriate abilities and professional behaviours required for new doctors and dentists to be successful in their clinical careers.  It is used in collaboration with other admissions processes such as interviews and academic qualifications.

It is also an opportunity to stand out from other applicants and demonstrate aptitude for a demanding programme of study.

The UCAT ANZ is a computer-based test delivered in Pearson VUE test centres throughout Australia, New Zealand and at some overseas locations.

Please note that some pathways to medicine / dentistry / clinical sciences will not require the UCAT.  For some applicants a different test may be required.  For details candidates should refer to the websites of the universities to which they intend to apply.

Tourism, Aviation experience & credits in your town

At ITC we take pride in delivering short courses to help students get inspired about Tourism & Aviation and educate them on the role and reality of the exciting opportunities the industry has to offer.  We work with local industry and as an added benefit students earn credits towards NCEA.  These courses are suitable for any students in year 12 or 13.

Just a few areas we cover on these courses are Flight Attending, Adventure Tourism, Tour Guiding & Leadership, Maori Tourism and much more.  These courses have had a significant impact on our students who attend and they walk away with inspiration to work towards their career goals.  They are delivered by experts who have worked in the industry themselves.

Below are the destinations we have scheduled courses.  Click on the destination for outlines, cost and dates:



You do not require to book a minimum number of students.  We make up these numbers with other schools in your region.  We suggest you secure places in advance due to the popularity of these courses and to avoid disappointment. To make a booking or enquiry please email
