Institute, OET is well established and recognised by authorities in the UK, Ireland,
Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Dubai and Namibia.
OET CEO, Sujata Stead, said: “We commend the three recognising organisations for
their commitment to the healthcare sector in Ukraine”.
“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
“Fortunately, we have been granted this opportunity to take another vital step in
improving the conditions for the development of our healthcare professionals. From
now on all healthcare practitioners will not only master their English language skills but
will also be able to improve their knowledge and attitude in becoming better
healthcare professionals. With OET specifically designed for various healthcare fields,
medical workers finally have the chance to feel more natural and confident in doing the
language test that is related to their area of work. And we do believe that OET will be
strongly rooted in Ukraine for all the benefits it offers its examinees”- stated Dr.Bilan,
