What is the Occupational English Test?

The OET (Occupational English Test) is an English language test for healthcare professionals.

OET assesses the language and communication skills of healthcare professionals who would like to register and practise in an English-speaking environment.   The OET exam assesses all four language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) with an emphasis on communication in a healthcare environment.

OET is trusted by regulators, hospitals and universities in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Singapore and many other countries.  OET has been developed specifically for 12 healthcare professions.
