Academy Membership

Become a member at New Zealand's most trusted medical admissions organisation. Memberships are custom-made to include everything you need to excel and enter medical school in New Zealand, including tutoring, mentoring, interview courses and more.

Did you know? Nearly a third of all premed students have a personalised Academy membership.

Tick all the boxes

Looking to prepare during high school? Needing to get ahead during the semester? Or just need a reliable resource to keep topped up?

Cram courses aren't what they're hyped up to be.

The appeal of a cram course is strong: short, intensive preparation before semester to get a flying start. But the real appeal is that it's an easy way to make lots of money quickly.

A head start alone does not make much difference in the outcome! It's called the fade-out effect and occurs because most students aren't able to stay ahead, causing flying starts to crash into painful grinds. It's like trying to sprint a marathon.

Don't believe me? Ask around and you might discover something interesting!

We ran cram courses.

But once we realised that it promised the world without delivering, we changed the way we support students to something that actually works.

Good grades are a symptom of good habits, study skills, environments, stress management, time management, focus, support and high-quality resources.

One-and-done? More like doesn't-cut-it.

Academy memberships are designed with the entire student experience in mind:

  • Study weeks or months ahead
  • Test your understanding
  • Develop better study habits
  • Connect with like-minded and supportive peers
  • Avoid the pitfalls that cause 80-90% of students to fail
  • Receive continuous support and guidance throughout the year

Focus on doing, instead of worrying if you're doing it right.

Study Ahead at Your Pace

The Khan Academy of Auckland premed. Ask us about adding online courses to your membership to unlock the most comprehensive premed resource for Auckland University medical admission.

Innovation through experience

Our courses are more than just video tutorials. We leverage our experience into world-class teaching in a fluid online course that follows international best-practice guidelines. As you progress, students not only learn the material, but also learn to study more effectively.

How we construct each course

Professors have expert bias and content can be overwhelming. We go through the courses and dissect each topic into their core concepts, often combining multiple lectures and sources.

Not all explanations are equal. We explore different teaching options and concept pathways to identify the simplest way for students to understand it to an A+ level.

Teaching effectively is about creating logic and meaning. Topics are re-organised based on our evaluation and taught by our tutors from the foundations up. This allows it to be high-yield for top-achievers, while simple enough for beginners.

Overcome difficulties before you face them. After teaching for so many years, we can predict problems that students will face at each turn, allowing us to include studying tips to overcome them smoothly while everyone else is scratching their heads in a few weeks time.

On Academy it'll be a 14-minute video, but in the lecture they take like 50 minutes to explain the same thing and not as well.

Social Enterprise: A Model for Sustainable Impact


Subsidised Pricing.

We charge for market-leading services, subsidising the cost based on every student’s financial situation. Students pay anywhere from original price to below-cost to nothing at all, depending on their situation.


100% Reinvestment. 0% Profit.

All funds after paying staff wages are reinvested into improving services, giving more in-kind scholarships, paying for 3rd-party mental health services for premed students, producing free content and running community programs.

What is a social enterprise?
Social enterprises achieve a positive impact (like charities), but using scalable and sustainable models (like businesses). Many consider social enterprises as “smart charities” and a way to make a difference without relying on donations and volunteers.

Like everyone, I was always sceptical about tutoring companies including JTT but I gave them a chance and to this day am very glad that I did. What differentiates JTT from other companies is the genuineness and authenticity that perpetuates in their services. They provide beyond what students even know what they are looking for and because of this, build a strong rapport to enable their academic prosperity. Because of this JTT will always remain dear to my heart.

You see all those posts and hear those rants not to trust external tutorial companies for pre-med especially because you'll apparently be scammed but this couldn't be further from the truth. JTT provides a safe and supportive environment which genuinely helps you through out the whole year... A family that you will never forget and who all want to change the world as much as you do.

JTT has kept me motivated and given me a healthy, encouraging, and inspiring support network of friends and tutors. The JTT team is so incredibly supportive and helped make a stressful year more fun and doable than I ever anticipated going in.

When reading JTT reviews myself at the start of the year, I was initially skeptical about how amazing and holistic a premed service could be. Attending JTT lessons hosted by excellent tutors and building supportive relationships with my peers has furthered my learning techniques in unforeseeable ways. One of the most valuables lessons from JTT is what a career in medicine actually entails without romanticism. Highly recommend!

Justin pours his heart and soul into making the JTT experience the most high quality, affordable, and inclusive tuition experience to date. There's a sense of togetherness in students, good banter, and genuine cheerfulness. Any tuition company can provide an adequate educational service, but Justin aims to do more than just that.

We never let money get in the way of your dream.

Good doctors come from any background. If you’re restricted by finances or personal circumstances, we will award you any of our scholarships that you are eligible for to help subsidise the cost of our memberships.

Academy doesn’t just prepare you for a single year of university or specific papers, it equips you with skills that you’ll need for life. Academy will completely shift your perspective on stress, time management and becoming an efficient, life-long learner. If you’re still on the fence about joining Academy, hop off and join the dark side. You won’t regret it.

JTT academy is actually the most useful and helpful resource out there. I'm just a few weeks in and I've learnt a lot of content in a depth I have never before. The tutors are really helpful and also the way in which they approach learning itself has allowed me to be a much better student. Would definitely recommend for anyone serious about not only getting into med but also wanting to improve their learning standards
