Complete List of Universities that Require UCAT

The UCAT is the most common admissions test required by medical and dental applicants.

If you’re thinking about applying to study Medicine, Dentistry or Physician Associate studies then you might be required to sit the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) because it’s used in the selection process by the majority of medical and dental schools in the UK. 

* It’s worth noting that prior to 2019 the UCAT admissions test was known as the UKCAT.

Don't get caught out!

We’ve put together this helpful list so you can check if the universities you’re interested in applying to study at require applicants to take the UCAT. 

When you’re closer to applying, we always recommend double-checking individual university websites for their entry requirements directly so that you don’t miss anything. To help with this research, we’ve helpfully linked to each uni for you! 😊
