The OET Scholarship Program

Helping refugee healthcare professionals to successfully resume their careers.

The OET Scholarship Program

About the Program

The OET Scholarship program provides funding to help asylum seekers and refugees meet the English language requirements specified by regulatory bodies to successfully practice in their new country. The program is open to refugees and asylum-seekers who are already professionally qualified healthcare workers in their home countries. In order to be eligible for this program you must contact one of of the below partners – Reache, Refuaid, AMES or IPC.

The scholarship provides individuals with access to the OET test, at their preferred test venue, free of charge. We work closely with our charity partners to ensure that the learner has the right level of English and exam readiness to pass the test.
