We offer a range of assessments designed to meet the needs of learners of all abilities. All our exams are aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
Cambridge English exams are recognised by over 20,000 universities, employers and governments around the world. Our C1 Advanced (CAE) exam is accepted by the Australian Government for all visa categories. In New Zealand, the B2 First (FCE) exam is accepted by Immigration New Zealand for all visa categories that require an English test. Our English language qualifications can open doors to higher education, improve employment opportunities, and because they are globally recognised, can increase your students’ choices for study or work.
Our English teaching qualifications such as CELTA, CELT-P, CELT-S and TKT are also recognised around the world as the international quality standard. We have qualifications and courses for new and experienced teachers alike.
Cambridge Assessment English also has online tests such as the Cambridge English Placement Test, and Linguaskill. Linguaskill is a quick and convenient online test to help organisations check the English levels of individuals and groups of candidates. It tests all four language skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening.
The Occupational English Test (OET) assesses the language proficiency of healthcare professionals seeking to register and practise in an English-speaking environment. It helps regulators, employers and educators select healthcare professionals with the right level of English proficiency to deliver safe and high-quality care, by optimising communication with patients, carers and colleagues.
Underpinned by Cambridge English and partnering with the Australian Research Council and University of Melbourne, OET has featured prominently in research literature relating to language testing in specific-purpose contexts.
OET comprises four sub-tests (writing, speaking, reading and listening) and is available monthly in 40 countries. It assesses the English language skills of 12 different health professions, from nursing and medicine to dentistry and optometry.
OET has developed a Preparation Provider Programme (PPP) to give OET preparation providers the knowledge and tools needed to run high quality OET preparation courses. It is designed for education institutions and teachers currently preparing students for OET, or those interested in starting a new course.
Preparation providers who undertake the Programme are supported fully throughout the process and are listed on the OET website upon successful completion.
Those providers who successfully complete additional online training are awarded Premium Provider status and receive a range of benefits, including a new library of sample materials, use of the OET Premium Provider logo, and access to a toolkit of marketing materials.
