WHAT IS IMAT?

The International Medical Admissions Test (IMAT), is an aptitude test used as part of the admissions process for some Italian universities. These universities offer undergraduate courses that are taught in English and open to applicants outside of Italy.[1] The test has sometimes been incorrectly referred to as the ‘Italian Medical Admissions Test’.

The test is conducted by Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) in conjunction with Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing, which also conducts admission tests for universities in the UK.
