Online Study Centre
As the leading provider of preparation courses for the UKCAT (from which the UCAT Australia and New Zealand is derived), we now offer our score-raising courses for students taking the identical UCAT ANZ. Study with Kaplan and benefit from a course created by experts and refined over 12 years of teaching and testing.
Our students are provided with all the guidance and tools needed to get great scores on the UCAT exam and stand out on their medical school applications. Don't just take our word for it - take a look at what our UK students thought.
