Live Language are pleased to announce that we are now a test venue for the OET (Occupational English Test), an English language test designed specifically for the healthcare sector. OET is now accepted by the Nurses and Midwifery Council (NMC) and General Medical Council (GMC) in the UK as an alternative to the IELTS. OET differs from the IELTS because it uses real healthcare scenarios and assesses your ability to use English as a healthcare professional. The English language requirements of the NMC are available here and GMC are here.
The test is accepted worldwide by a wide range of organisations in Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Namibia and Singapore.

OET Preparation Workshops
Live Language has undergone an extensive training programme with OET and have been awarded Premium Provider status. The award of this status is based on the quality of the teaching materials created. We are one of only 14 schools worldwide who have passed the programme (as at 6th November 2018).
Our workshops are designed to prepare you for the OET exam. Each workshop covers:
- The components of the exam
- The types of task and question in each section
- The examiners marking criteria
- Practice activities
We recommend that you are at least a C+ or IELTS 6.0 minimum for these workshops. You will find the course too difficult if you are not at this level and may not benefit from the workshops. The workshops run from 9.00 – 2.30pm with a total of 1-hour’s break. You can choose to study whichever workshops you need.
Minimum student number is 5 and you must register and make payment before the deadline date. All materials are included. Cost is £65 per workshop or £250 if you buy all 4 workshops together.
