Kaplan OET preparation

Prepare for OET

The OET is an ideal qualification for healthcare workers who hope to register and practice in the English-speaking world, and we offer OET preparation and testing at our Torquay English school.

Unlike other tests, OET is designed specifically for the international health and social care industry and reflects real professional working scenarios, such as consulting with a patient or writing a referral letter. Our OET preparation course provides intensive training in medical English for workers including doctors, nurses, dentists, dietitians, pharmacists, occupational therapists, vets and other health and social care professionals. 

Already recognized by authorities in Australia, Dubai, New Zealand and Singapore, the OET is now accepted in the UK by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and the General Medical Council (GMC) as proof of English proficiency for registration purposes.

Kaplan International Languages has been working with the NHS for more than 7 years.  We are the experts in English for the healthcare sector.
