The Occupational English Test (OET) opens a new test venue in Northern Ireland with
Foyle International.

OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at the new
venue from 7 December 2019.

OET (the Occupational English Test) is an Australian-developed English language test that
assesses the language proficiency of healthcare professionals. It provides assessment of all
four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – through test material
designed to reflect real healthcare scenarios.

Paul Murray, Director of Foyle International said: “We at Foyle International are delighted to
be the first OET centre in the north of Ireland.

Having specialised in medical English for over 20 years, Foyle will work closely with the new
OSCE 2 centre located at Magee Campus, Ulster University to increase the number of
international doctors and nurses qualifying in the North West region as healthcare
professionals and grow Derry as an international medical hub.

Thank you to all our staff and associates for their hard work in bringing this project to

OET COO, Richard Brown, said “We are committed to meeting the increasing demand for
OET within the UK and are pleased to be partnering with Foyle International to open our first
Test venue in Northern Ireland.”
