OET, the English language test for internationally qualified healthcare workers recognised at Charles Darwin University, Australia.

The Occupational English Test (OET) is now recognised by Charles Darwin University giving healthcare professionals in the region an opportunity to improve their educational and career prospects.

Healthcare professionals who achieve required results in the healthcare-specific OET to prove English proficiency will be able to apply for the Bachelor of Nursing and Bachelor of Midwifery programs.

Charles Darwin University believes a new world university is one built on social justice, sustainability, creativity and collective effort. A place where everyone can follow their passion to make things better – however big or small. It strives for excellence, integrity, accountability and equality of opportunity for all.

The University values and respects the place, history and culture of Indigenous Australians and is committed to bringing people together to use knowledge to help shape a brighter future.

OET allows the organisation to accurately understand applicants’ ability to communicate safely within the English medium. OET is a recognised process for assessing candidates’ who apply for the Bachelor of Nursing and Bachelor of Midwifery programs.

OET is an international English language test that assesses the language skills of healthcare professionals seeking to register and practice in an English-speaking environment. OET is recognised by Australian and New Zealand Immigration for visa purposes, as well as healthcare regulators in Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland and Singapore for registration purposes. OET is also accepted by healthcare educators for admission and exit assessment of English language skills.

OET CEO, Sujata Stead, says: “We commend Charles Darwin University for their commitment to the healthcare sector in Darwin and the Top End”.

“Unlike other English tests, OET test materials are based on real healthcare scenarios so educators and employers can be confident that successful candidates have the level of English communication skills required for safe and high-quality patient care,” she concluded.
