Tamaki and her FCE teacher Andy

From FCE course, you can get plenty of specific knowledge of English. This course encouraged me to study English more! Then I got a variety of English expression and confidence of my English for each section. I used to watch Disney channel every day in English and became fond of Western pop music. I’d longed for a life in English spoken country then decided to live in Perth. Everybody is family in Lexis! You can have multinational friends! We have a lot of activities every day. You will have fabulous experiences if you are in Lexis! From this April, I work as a receptionist in a metropolitan hotel. I want to introduce Japan to foreign guests who stay at my hotel because I know how awesome Japan is. So I would love to tell them on my own words. Thanks to Lexis school I became confident of my English. I think that be confident of doing something is the most important part in every field. If you want to study English and feel how Australia is, just join Lexis!

Lexis Sunshine Coast and Seoul campuses are approved OET Test Centres!

We are delighted to announce Lexis Sunshine Coast and Lexis Korea are now approved OET test centres.

The Occupational English Test (OET) is an international English language test that assesses the language and communication skills of healthcare professionals who seek to register and practise in an English-speaking environment.

OET Test materials are designed to reflect real medical workplace scenarios, meaning that candidates can be confident that they will know exactly what to expect, and feel more confident on test day.

The OET provides a valid and reliable assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – with an emphasis on communication in medical and health professional settings.

OET tests international health practitioners in the following 12 professions:

  • Dentistry
  • Dietetics
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Optometry
  • Pharmacy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Podiatry
  • Radiography
  • Speech Pathology
  • Veterinary Science

Why the OET?

The OET is recognised and trusted by more than 30 regulatory healthcare bodies and councils in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Many organisations, including hospitals, universities and colleges, are using OET as proof of a candidate’s ability to communicate effectively in a demanding healthcare environment. In addition, OET is recognised by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection for a number of visa categories, including work and student visas.

Many candidates currently employed in, or considering working in a healthcare related field choose the OET as it employs the English language that they are most familiar with – the same language that they use every day at work.

Where can I take the OET?

Lexis Sunshine Coast is a registered OET Examination Centre. Our next  2016 examination date will be:

Saturday 9 April 2016

Applications open: 18 Feb to 16 Mar

Results published: 3 May 16

I’m not sure I’m ready for the exam!

If you are concerned that you may not yet have the required level of English for your OET target score, please contact us here to arrange a language assessment. We will be pleased to assist you in arranging an appropriate course of study prior to your examination date.
