Looking for an in-person classroom course to fully prepare you for the IMAT test?
We’ve checked Leonardo school’s Intensive IMAT prep-course, which we will present here in detail and even negotiated a special deal for our readers.
Leonardo’s school is a network of reputable private prep schools, with authorization from the Italian Ministry of Education. This network was among the first to begin offering English taught intensive IMAT preparation courses in form of frontal lessons in Rome and Milan.
The IMAT intensive course offers a structured study plan based on the official IMAT program, professional teachers and plenty of exercises to ensure that the students will know to apply all the knowledge they gain during the course to pass the IMAT exam. We found the course best suited to people who need a thorough in-depth review of the material, especially those who didn’t study specific IMAT topics (e.g. Physics) in school.
The location of the course (Rome & Milan) allows the student to minimize distraction from home and everyday family worries and to fully focus on the studies with like-minded peers who are just as focused on passing the IMAT with a high score.
As a nice bonus, by attending the course in Italy, you will have an opportunity to visit the English Medical schools in the city or nearby, get to talk to medical students and have a taste of the Italian culture.
IMPORTANT: From our previous experience with Leonardo’s school, their IMAT courses are getting booked out really fast. For example, the IMAT course in Milan was fully booked in 14 days since the announcement last time. Places are reserved on “first come first served” basis and last year many students contacted me desperately after all places were booked out, but there was nothing we could do. Additionally, it takes time to get a visa (the school will help you with that) and to prepare your arrival, so make sure to book as early as you can.

Last years, the classes were filled with mostly International candidates, coming from many foreign countries, especially for the course. No concerns were raised about the English level of the teachers and the course has received very positive feedback.
