How the GMC considers evidence from a country where English is the first and native language

For the avoidance of doubt, the GMC does not accept evidence of non-medical University education completed in a country where English is the first and native language as sufficient on its own to demonstrate language capability for safe practice in the UK. This is because this type of evidence does not demonstrate the ability to read, write, speak and interact with patients, relatives and healthcare professionals in English. Furthermore, If the evidence relates to secondary education, it will be beyond what the GMC considers recent.

According to the GMC, the easiest way to demonstrate proficiency of English language to satisfy licensing requirements, is to take the academic version of the IELTS test and gain an overall score of 7.5, with a minimum of 7.0 in each of the band scores: listening, reading, speaking and writing.
