OET Preparation Course
The Occupational English Test is the English language test for healthcare professionals. It assesses the language communication skills of healthcare professionals who wish to register and practise in an English-speaking environment.
Select English are accredited by OET as providers of preparation programmes for the OET exam.
We can offer a one week intensive course option that consists of 25 hours of preparation for the exam. There’s also a part-time option available which offer 4 hours of classes in the evenings over 4 weeks.
The course will help you understand and become familiar with the format of the OET exam.
You’ll use a range of medical language to help improve your communication with patients and with your work colleagues.
Your OET classes will focus on the specific skills you need to practise in order to achieve your target score in the OET exam.
Morning classes focus on the reading and listening sections of the exam. In the afternoon you’ll prepare for the writing and speaking sections in classes using the medical language used in the exam.
We offer a one-week intensive course and a part time course spread over four weeks. You can take the exam in Cambridge the day after the end of the course.
You’ll take regular practice tests and one full practice test under exam conditions during your course to help keep track of your progress and to identify areas for improvement. Your teachers will provide you with detailed feedback after each practice test.
