Depending on your chosen university and course, you may need to take an admissions test as part of your application (some joint degree courses require you to take two tests). We advise that you check the relevant university’s website for the most up-to-date information about their requirements.
As well as being an entry requirement, an admissions test gives you the chance to show your potential to succeed on a challenging course.
Recent information from Cambridge Assessment: The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is an admissions test for applicants to Medicine, Biomedical Science and Dentistry courses at certain universities. The Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is working in conjunction with the Italian Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MIUR) to develop and deliver the International Medical Admissions Test (IMAT). IMAT is a 100 minute subject-specific admissions test in English for applicants to medicine and surgery courses. These courses are taught in English, with places open to both home and international students.
