OET, the English language test for internationally qualified medical professionals recognised at The University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand.
The Occupational English Test (OET) is now recognised by University of Auckland giving healthcare professionals in the region an opportunity to improve their career and educational prospects.
Healthcare professionals who achieve required results in the healthcare-specific OET to prove English proficiency will be able to use this for admission to Medical and Health Science programmes.
The mission of the University of Auckland is to be a research-led, international university, recognised for excellence in teaching, learning, research, creative work, and administration, for the significance of its contributions to the advancement of knowledge and its commitment to serve its local, national and international communities.
OET allows The University of Auckland to accurately understand applicants’ ability to communicate safely within the English medium. OET is a recognised process for assessing international candidates’ competency and proficiency in English.
OET is an international English language test that assesses the language skills of healthcare professionals seeking to register and practice in an English-speaking environment. OET is recognised by Australian and New Zealand Immigration for visa purposes, as well as healthcare regulators in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ukraine, Singapore, Dubai and Namibia, for registration purposes. OET is also accepted by healthcare educators for admission and exit assessment of English language skills.
OET CEO, Sujata Stead, says: “We commend The University of Auckland for their commitment to the education sector in New Zealand”.
“Unlike other English tests, OET test materials are based on real healthcare scenarios so educators and employers can be confident that successful candidates have the level of English communication skills required for safe and high-quality patient care,” she concluded.
