About the OET

The OET (Occupational English Test) is owned by Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment Pty Ltd, a venture between Cambridge English Language Assessment (a not-for-profit department of the University of Melbourne) and Box Hill Institute.

OET is a well-respected international English language test for the healthcare sector, established in the late 1980s. OET has gone through a continuous cycle of research, validation and evaluation to ensure it is fit for purpose and relevant today.

The Occupational English Test (OET) is an English language test designed to meet the specific needs of the healthcare sector.
