Taking an English test for UK Visas and Immigration

Quick read:

  • Doctors, nurses and midwives do not need to take an additional English test for Tier 2 [general] visas.
  • Doctors, nurses and midwives can use their successful OET results when applying for a Tier 2 [general] visa.
  • OET is not recognised for other general visas by the UK Visa and Immigration.
  • NMC and GMC English requirements have not changed.
  • You can find more information about using OET for UK visas here.

Doctors, nurses and midwives only need to meet the language requirements of their professional body and can use their successful OET results during the visa application process.

Doctors, nurses and midwives will benefit from taking OET for visa purposes and registration with their professional regulatory council because OET is a healthcare-specific test. Each of OET’s sub-tests content is familiar and appropriate for healthcare professionals.
