What is OET?
The Occupational English Test (OET) is a language proficiency test aimed at evaluating the English skills of healthcare professionals who seek to practice in an English-speaking country. OET content is relevant to many professions, including medicine, nursing, dentistry, optometry, physiotherapy & pharmacy. It is important that you use preparation material that is specific to your specialisation because the writing and speaking sections of the test are tailored to each profession in order to make the scenarios more realistic and relevant to your future work environment.
Our blog offers details about each section (Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking) and some useful tips for OET preparation in the hope that we can help you feel comfortable with what you’re getting into!
Check out a couple of examples (like this one!) of our OET live training on our E2 OET YouTube Channel.
