Healthcare professionals headed to the UK? IELTS is for you.

Media Release

24 September 2019


 

From 1 October, test takers only need to take one IELTS test for healthcare professional registration and their Tier 2 visa application for the UK.

This is because the UK Government has changed the rules regarding proof of English language for healthcare professionals and streamlined the process.

IELTS and IELTS for UKVI are accepted by both the Nursing and Midwifery Council and the General Medical Council.
