National Institute of Education

National Institute of Education (NIE) was founded in 1999 on solid principles of consistency, authenticity, transparency and student empowerment. NIE is a member of the Australian Tutoring Association (ATA), and we pride ourselves on meeting all recommendations by the Department of Fair Trading for families looking for a legitimate tuition organisation to guide you on your most important journey to excellence.

NIE is the leading provider of UCAT (previously UMAT) and Medical Interview preparation courses in Australia and New Zealand. In partnership with Kaplan, leaders in UCAT preparation, and becoming an official Kaplan Certified Education Provider has once again put NIE at the forefront of the medical admission tests preparation in Australia and New Zealand. Our approach – and our high numbers of students qualifying into medical careers across the country – make us substantially different from any other types of similarly-advertised course in the supplementary education industry.

You have most likely been guided to our services from the Career Adviser at your school, so please contact us directly to have any further questions about the UCAT, interviews, career in health and your exam preparation options answered.
