University Selection Criteria

The UCAT was run for the first time in 2019. How has the introduction of the UCAT changed the entry criteria used by universities for medicine and dentistry courses? To find out, we contacted medical schools throughout Australia and New Zealand for information about their requirements for 2020 admissions. Their final selection criteria are summarised in the table below.

(Please note that some universities also require applicants to have completed prerequisite subjects.)
