All medical schools in the UK, as well as English-speaking medical courses at Italian universities require candidates to sit aptitude tests (either the UCAT or the BMAT) for their admission to their degree courses. For English-speaking medical course at Italian universities performance in the IMAT is the single and only criterion for admission provided a student has completed his/her secondary education. For British medical schools, the UCAT is the most common such test and is required by 26 out of the 33 medical schools. The UCAT (formerly known as UKCAT) is a computer-based test that must be sat between early July and early October in the year before UCAS applications are submitted. The test is conducted at specialist test centres (one of which is in Athens). The test can only be taken once so candidates must ensure they are well prepared before they sit the test. Our preparatory programme aims to increase the candidate's familiarity with the test, refresh analytical skills and teach strategies to secure as high a score as possible. This will improve a candidate's chances of admission to medical school. For more information and for a sample of the test visit the UKCAT website. 

Foundation College has been offering a UCAT preparatory programme since 2012 and we are proud to report that our students have secured some very high scores. In 2020 our course will run over 5 weeks from  23 June to 23 July with teaching done in the evenings of Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (4 - 8 pm). The tuition fee for this course is 1000€. 

In September 2017 Foundation College ran its first IMAT and BMAT preparation course to prepare students for the BMAT exam (late October) and the IMAT exam (mid September). The 2020 courses will start on 25 August and will run over three weeks for the IMAT and four weeks for the BMAT respectively. Teaching classes will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4:30 to 8:30 pm at Mitropoleos Street and the tuition fee is 500€ for the IMAT and 750€ for the BMAT. 

We only teach one cohort of students for each of the UCAT, BMAT and IMAT courses so early application is recommended. Students are admitted on a first-come first-served basis. 

Students who take our UCAT and/or BMAT courses are eligible to participate in the interview preparation training programme that Foundation College routinely offers to its own students. The course is delivered by psychologist, Theofano Megalokonomou, who has many years of experience in this kind of work and a very high success rate.
