OET course detail


OET is “…recommended by healthcare professionals…research shows that OET is advocated by past test takers as the most suitable test for registration, employment and visa purposes.”1

OET is a highly-reputed international English language test for the healthcare sector. It is majority owned by Cambridge English Language Assessment – a not-for-profit department of the University of Cambridge with over 100 years of experience in assessing the English language. 

Over 20,000 organisations accept their Cambridge English Language Assessment certificates worldwide including leading companies, universities and institutions such as: American Express India, SKODA India, CMS College of Engineering, and the WHO India.

OET is recognised and trusted by healthcare boards and councils in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Many organisations, including hospitals, universities and colleges, are using OET as proof of a candidate’s ability to communicate effectively in a demanding healthcare environment.

When teaching OET, EnglishCool won’t make false promises to you about cheap, quick answers for passing your tests. In the long term ‘fast and cheap’ can become very expensive if you’ve been lead to believe that there are shortcuts and have to repeat the test multiple times. It could be especially costly if you work in the healthcare industry where miscommunication and misunderstanding can lead to serious repurcussions.

EnglishCool wants you to succeed and we’ll do everything we can to make sure you are ready for the OET test. Most importantly, we’ll be honest with you about your progress because we know it’s in your best interests.
