NIE will help you prepare for UMAT
Established in 1999, the National Institute of Education (NIE) conducts UMAT Preparation courses aimed at developing the knowledge, skills and strategies required to maximise your entry potential. NIE was the first UMAT provider to be a Government Registered Training Organisation. Our teachers are fully qualified, experienced and committed to the standards of excellence in education and teaching. NIE is supported by expert staff and advisors including teachers accredited by the Department of Education and Training, a range of Health Care Professionals, Social Workers, Academics and Practicing Clinicians. Our UMAT teaching staff have all sat the UMAT and have an academic background directly relevant to the three respective sections of the UMAT.
Our unique UMAT training approach…
Researching, teaching and reviewing our UMAT prep programs over the past fourteen years has put us at the forefront of UMAT preparation tuition. Students are treated as individuals, with a level of respect deserved by such high achievers, and the approach of our staff is to nurture their progress through a balanced program of self-directed learning and face-to-face teaching. The NIE programs are specifically designed to maximise a student’s preparation time without detracting from their other studies. Core to our programs are the hardcopy books that imitate the true UMAT. No online training can come close to this.
NIE is still the only UMAT provider offering:
- Hardcopy books for every construct (section) of the UMAT
- Teachers accredited by the Department of Education and Training, and ATA, expert staff and advisors
- Expert teachers for each section of the UMAT
- A revolutionary UMAT medical interview one-on-one training program (University-specific MMI and structured interviews)
- Medical Interview workshops
- NIE has also run preparation workshops for the Graduate Australian Medical Schools Admission Test (GAMSAT), is the only UMAT preparation provider to have run courses in London.
- Provides GAMSAT preparation advice and GAMSAT personalised one-on-one interview training.
UMAT interview preparation
We also offer interview training, but remember that your first goal is to achieve a score that will gain you the UMAT interview, and with a fail rate of greater than 85%, exam preparation must be your focus first.
NIE UMAT Preparation includes
Eight UMAT books with over 800 pages of specialised curriculum and over 1600 UMAT practice questions (Premium UMAT course). Ten UMAT books with over 1700 pages of specialised curriculum and over 4000 quality UMAT practice questions (Platinum UMAT Course). All written by our committed PreMed UMAT Prep NIE Team. We extensively research and review our notes every year, adding new UMAT practice test questions, resulting in the most up-to-date and relevant preparation available. Six of our UMAT books are supplied as hard copy, the UMAT Starter and UMAT Update Packs are emailed for speed and convenience (printable PDFs). The UMAT Starter Pack is emailed as soon as students apply providing instant access to the first installment of our balanced preparation program. We do not conduct online UMAT courses where you have limited access and no ownership of the material. We do not charge you online membership fee that you would have to pay again if you need more UMAT practice. NIE provides quality written material that you own forever and can use anywhere anytime, allowing for greater flexibility and incorporation into already hectic schedules.
NIE UMAT Practice workshops include:
An overview of the total UMAT process (exams, scores, standardising, applications, university requirements, interviews and more) including past experiences, professional advice and performance expectations; each student is individually assessed and fine-tuned for peak performance. Strategic Problem Solving and Tuition in each of the three UMAT Constructs (UMAT Sections). Highly experienced and expert lecturers define and explain each area. A full UMAT Practice Exam conducted under exam conditions, followed by a feedback session. Expose your true strengths and weaknesses in relation to UMAT-readiness.
