UK Immigration: No Separate English Test Required for Doctors & Nurses

The Home office of UK has declared that doctors, nurses, and midwives, who satisfy the English language demand of their associated healthcare boards, will no longer require to sit for a different English examination to apply for a UK tier-2 (general) visa.

The General Medical Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council are the two boards of healthcare below reference here. The Home Office of UK announcement indicates that a single Occupational English Test (O.E.T) will serve for both the intentions.

The OET is a global English language examination that evaluates the language communication abilities of healthcare specialists, who seek to enroll and practice in an English-speaking atmosphere.

The Home Office of UK announcement has been broadly welcomed by healthcare experts in Kerala state, who want to work in the UK, as per the Sujata Stead, Cambridge Boxhill Language Evaluation, CEO, which owns and operates the O.E.T.

English language examination has been efficient to ‘assure that healthcare experts, who have already succeeded an English language examination recognized by the appropriate professional body, don't have to sit for different examination before admission to the UK on a tier-2 visa.

This indicates that they will be excluded from the English language demand for their visa appeal when they have practiced their successful O.E.T results for enrolling with the appropriate healthcare regulator.

Results of OET 

The UK’s General Medical Council and Nursing and Midwifery Council in the UK had recognized the test previously. The revision will appeal to all tier-2 (general) visa appeals submitted on or later 1 October 2019.

We are happy that healthcare specialists can now choose OET for both visa and enrollment purposes. This will tremendously lessen the burden on overseas-trained experts attempting to work in the UK, told Sujata Stead.
