OET is the world’s only international English language test specifically for healthcare professionals. The test assesses the communication skills of healthcare professionals who seek to register and practise in an English-speaking environment. OET results are accepted by healthcare regulators worldwide, including in the USA, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Dubai and Singapore. The test is also recognised in Australia and New Zealand for visa and immigration purposes. At the same time, doctors and nurses in the UK are not required to take a separate English language test when applying for a Tier 2 (General) visa if they have provided OET results as proof of English proficiency to their healthcare regulator.
