Occupational English Test (OET) is an international English language test that assesses the language communication skills of healthcare professionals who seek to register and practise in an English-speaking environment.

Who Recognises OET?

OET is trusted by regulators, hospitals & universities in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and Singapore as proof of ability to communicate effectively.

OET covers all four language skills with an emphasis on communication in a healthcare environment.

The test is provided by Cambridge Assessment English and Box Hill Institute and is administered by the Hellenic English Council (HEC) in Athens.
