Communicative courses 

Our courses are designed to help you improve your practical use of English for medicine. Focussing on the communicative approach, you will build your confidence in spoken and written communication whilst learning strategies which are directly applicable to passing the OET exam.  

Proven expertise  

IH London is a trusted partner of OET and has been awarded Premium Provider status. This ensures our courses are delivered according to the highest teaching standards giving students the best possible chance of success on test day. 

The Occupational English Test (OET) is a test for healthcare professionals. The OET is used in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore among others to assess the Medical English skills of a wide range of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses and midwives.

Who we are 

Our story began in 1953 when John Haycraft (CBE) and his wife Brita Haycraft started a school, because they believed in intercultural understanding through language learning. We have continued their mission and changed people’s lives through language for over 65 years. 

International House London is a charitable education trust and we reinvest profits to improve the learning experience for our customers. 

 

Our accreditation 

Our Medical English courses are accredited by OET (Occupational English Test) and the British Council. Our accreditors assess the standards of management, resources and premises and teaching, and we consistently meet the criteria in all areas.
