I was just wondering if Australians can sit the Ireland HPAT (UMAT equivalent)?

Hey, so the HPAT registration website (https://hpat-ireland.acer.edu.au/register), says you need what's called a "CAO" number before applying to sit the HPAT.

The CAO is the "Central Applications Office" I.E. their VTAC/UAC. You can apply if you are an international student and the application form is here: https://www.cao.ie/apply.php

In fact, University College Dublin (which has a med faculty) explicitly writes on its website "Our strong international focus has developed over the past twenty-five years, with significant numbers of North American and South East Asian students enrolling within our medicine programmes." at this URL: http://www.ucd.ie/medicine/studywithus/internationalstudents/

One issue. You WILL need to travel to Ireland to sit the HPAT! The HPAT website says about its test centres: "HPAT Ireland will be offered in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick, Sligo and Waterford.

Additional test centres will not be established."

Finally, you only have 10 days left to apply for this year's HPAT, so you're going to need to decide quickly. Best of luck!
