What is the Occupational English Test?

The Occupational English Test (OET) is an English language test designed specifically for the healthcare sector. The test is accepted worldwide by a wide range of healthcare organisations in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, Namibia and Singapore. Recently, it was announced that you can also use the OET as evidence of English for Tier 2 visas. This means you can use one exam for registration and visa purposes.

Can I take the test at Live Language?

Yes you can, but you need to book your test through the OET page. OET deals with all registration, payment, and results enquiries. When you have registered for the test with OET, you will receive a email from us with information about your test day and your schedule. This is usually sent about 5 days before your exam. 
Please note, our centre does not have headsets for the listening section, but our rooms are small and we have excellent audio equipment. We only offer the paper-based test at the current time.
