OET, the English language test for healthcare professionals, will be available at a new venue from April. The new Lisbon test venue will be managed by English Exam Centre.

OET (Occupational English Test) is an Australian-developed English language test which assesses language communication skills 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.

Jonathan Munro, Exams Manager at English Exam Centre says: “We are committed to providing assessment services and qualifications that meet the needs of all communities in Portugal. By offering OET at English Exam Centre, we are enabling health care professionals to demonstrate their English language proficiency for professional registration and employment purposes internationally”.

“OET, which is owned by Cambridge English Language Assessment and the Box Hill Institute, has a unique and proven 30 year pedigree in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. The decision to offer the test was an easy one to make,” he concludes.

OET CEO, Sujata Stead, said the new venue will make a huge contribution to the healthcare sector.

“I’m sure OET candidates will have an excellent experience with English Exam Centre. We commend them for their passion for meeting the needs of the community through empowering healthcare professionals to have the level of English communication skills required for safe and effective care”.
