The shortage of highly qualified Medical staff is no secret and one of the barriers that overseas qualified medical personnel face when they seek to practice in the UK, is the International English Language Test System (or IELTS). To prove their proficiency in English, medical staff and overseas qualified medical students, must take and pass the Academic IELTS, scoring a minimum of band 7.0 in each of the four tested areas (listening, reading, speaking and writing) within one sitting. In some cases an overall score of 7.5 is required.
In our commitment to our candidates, Monday 1st August will see the launch of our Intensive Academic IELTS Preparation Centre for Medical Professionals in North London. Training in small cohorts of up to four medical professionals, our students can expect to be coached by qualified Academic IELTS tutors, each with impressive credentials and, in some cases, decades of experience. We aim to improve your IELTS scores by at least 0.5 band each month, until you reach the GDC, NMC and GPhC standard of IELTS 7.0 and the GMC standard of 7.5. We also promise to create a warm and friendly environment to allow our professionals the opportunity to make new professional contacts and friends, as they upskill with us.
