OET (Occupational English Test)

The Occupational English Test (OET) is a language test for health practitioners who have qualified to practice in one country and wish to gain provisional registration to practice their profession in another which has an English-speaking context. The Test assesses English language proficiency as it is used in medical and health professions. The OET is administered by the OET Centre up to ten times a year and in over 40 locations around the world. The Test measures the language competency of health practitioners who are seeking registration and the ability to practice in an English-speaking context. It is designed to ensure that language competency is assessed in a relevant professional context.

Currently the OET tests the following professions

Dentistry Pharmacy

How to register for OET?
When you fill in the online application, it is necessary to enter all information accurately.
  • Your current national ID card or passport number will be used for identification purposes at the test. If the identification you bring on the day of the test does not exactly match your online record or if it is no longer current, you will not be allowed to sit. If you are sitting the test in Australia, you MUST provide your current, valid passport as identification - no other type of photo ID will be accepted.
  • The address in our database will appear on your Statement of Results exactly as you enter it, and is where your results will be sent. If it is not correct, you may not get your Statement of Results. If you need another copy of your results, a fee will be charged.

NOTE: It is your responsibility to check your online profile for accuracy and to advise OET administrators when changes need to be made to your ID details. OET administrators cannot make ID changes within three weeks of a test date for which you have applied. If for any reason you need to give your ID document to the authorities, be sure to make a certified copy of it (high quality, in colour) before handing it over. Contact the OET administrators no less than three weeks before a test date if it will not be returned to you in time for the ID check on the day of your test.
