WHAT IS OET?

OCCUPATIONAL ENGLISH TEST

The Occupational English Test (OET) ) is the English language test for healthcare professionals. It assesses the language communication skills of healthcare professionals who wish to register and practise in an English-speaking environment. OET is available for the following 12 professions: dentistry, dietetics, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, optometry, pharmacy, physiotherapy, podiatry, radiography, speech pathology, and veterinary science.

OET is recognised by regulatory healthcare boards and councils in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, Dubai, Singapore, Namibia and Ukraine. Many organisations, including hospitals, universities and colleges, are using OET as proof of a candidate's ability to communicate effectively in a demanding healthcare environment. In addition, OET is recognised by the Australian Department of Home Affairs and Immigration New Zealand for all visa categories where an English test may be required.
Each recognising organisation determines which grade results mean that candidates meet the language competency standards to function in their profession. A full list of regulatory organisations that accept OET can be seen on the official website.


WHAT IS CAMBRIDGE?

CAMBRIDGE ENGLISH

Cambridge English (also known as ESOL) is a department of Cambridge University. Their English exams Proficiency (CPE), Advanced (CAE), First (FCE), Preliminary (PET) and Key (KET) are recognised around the world by thousands of employers, universities and government ministries as proof of ability to use English. Cambridge ESOL developed the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) — an internationally recognised level of language ability.

Reasons to Attend This Course:

a) Internationally Recognised Test
Cambridge Exams are established and prestigious exams certified by University of Cambridge and recognised all around the world. Cambridge Exams can be taken at 2,800 authorised exam centres worldwide in 130 countries and there are more than 52,000 registered preparations. Cambridge CAE and CPE are recognised by the world’s top 100 universities for university study.

b) Improve Students Real-Life English Skills
By preparing for a Cambridge Exam, you will develop communication skills which you can use for everyday life, work and study. Cambridge Exams FCE, CAE & CPE focus on general English and are fun to prepare for. Unlike IELTS, the exams do not just cover academic English but are designed to test the English you will read, write, hear and speak in real life situations.

c) Set Goals and Increase Motivation
When you get to a higher level of English – at least good Upper Intermediate (B2) - you have the English skills to communicate with most people, deal with most situations and do most things you need to do on a daily basis. The challenge you have is to push yourself further. Preparing for Cambridge FCE, CAE or CPE will help you set goals and give you the motivation you need to take your English to the next level!

d) Stand Out From the Crowd
Today’s job market is very international but it's also very competitive. Many other international candidates have great English but how many can prove it? A Cambridge exam allows you to get that advantage. A Cambridge qualification on your CV not only shows that you have that level on English officially - it also shows an employer that you are willing to dedicate time to improving your English and your professional skills.

e) Valid Forever
Cambridge Exams have no expiry date which means the result is valid forever. Please note that if you are taking the Cambridge Exam for university entry, some institutions may only accept a result up to 2 or 3 years after the exam was taken.
