Health Professions Admissions Test (HPAT)

HPATMany of our sixth year and repeat students apply to study medicine. We feel it is important to assist them in preparation for HPAT examinations. We offer timetabled HPAT Classes to our full-time students. Preparation in small class groups is given on a weekly basis for both the Irish and Ulster HPAT examinations.

Leinster Senior College will commence HPAT tutorials on 18th Oct 2023 for 16 weeks in preparation for the HAPT examination due to take place February 2024.
