Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions about our UCAT Courses? Here are some common queries answered.

Do you have in-person UCAT Courses?

Yes! We offer face-to-face teaching, in addition to our live online options.

What's the best UCAT course?

The best UCAT course is the one that suits your learning style. If you prefer live teaching, then the best UCAT courses would be ones that are held live, whether that’s in-person or via a remote classroom. But if you prefer to learn yourself with e-learning, you may find our self-paced Online Course is actually the best UCAT course for you!

Are in-person and live online Courses priced differently?

Yes, in-person Courses are a little more expensive because they cost more for us to run. But we still think they’re great value!

Will I be able to ask questions during live online Courses?

Our UCAT Courses are as interactive live online as they are face-to-face, so you can raise your hand (digitally) and ask questions at any point.

What happens if my in-person Course can't go ahead?

If your in-person course cannot go ahead for health and safety reasons, you’ll be able to join our live online version instead.

How will I know how to join the course?

We’ll send you instructions for joining your UCAT Course by email in advance of your course date.

What's the difference between this Course and your Online UCAT Course?

Our Online UCAT Course is a self-paced e-Learning course you can do in your own time. This UCAT Course is delivered live during one day.

Can I get a discount if I buy more than one course?

Yes! Check out some of our popular UCAT Packages to save up to 20%.
