With the acceptance by NMC, the GMC, and other professional bodies, the OET (Occupational English Test) has seen growing popularity across Europe.
As experts in healthcare recruitment, Vitae Professionals has developed a very successful program with experienced tutors with more than 100 nurses passing the exam with success in the last 18 months.
If you are a healthcare professional and considering the possibility of working in an English-speaking country, we invite you to read further to learn more about OET, our team and learn how we can assist you in this process.
What is OET?
OET is an English language test for healthcare professionals (not a test of their medical knowledge) who seek to register and practice in an English-speaking environment. This exam focuses on the assessment of the four key language skills: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. It’s trusted by regulators, hospitals & universities in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, and Singapore as proof of ability to communicate effectively.
By taking OET, professionals will be able to prove they have the right level of English and learn the kind of language they will need daily in a professional context.
The interesting thing about this exam, in comparison with IELTS, is that each part assesses your understanding of English in a workplace-related healthcare context. Speaking and writing sub-tests are specific to each healthcare profession.
Being an accredited Preparation Provider for the Occupational English Test, Vitae Professionals offers a range of possibilities for this exam’s qualification. We offer courses for Nursing, Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, and Veterinary Science.
We have an excellent team of specialists (that you’ll have the opportunity to meet below), and an online study platform where you’ll be able to prepare successfully for this exam.
