The Occupational English Test (OET) is a healthcare-specific English language test. It assesses the English language skills of healthcare professionals seeking to register and practise in an English-speaking environment.

OET covers the four language skills of writing, speaking, reading and listening, and helps develop language skills for success in healthcare courses, clinical placement, registration, and the workplace for practitioners from 12 healthcare professions.

Unlike general English tests, OET test materials are based on real healthcare scenarios so employers can be confident that successful candidates have the right level of English proficiency required for safe and high-quality patient care.

OET results are accepted as proof of English proficiency by healthcare boards and councils in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Namibia and Dubai for registration. OET is also accepted by leading healthcare employers and educators for admission and recruitment; and both the Australian and New Zealand immigration departments for all visa categories where an English test may be required.

Available in over 80 venues in 35 countries, OET is owned by Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment, a venture between Cambridge English, UK and Box Hill Institute, Australia. For more information visit: www.occupationalenglishtest.org
