IELTS

Under the change, nurses and midwives wishing to work in the UK will still be required to achieve a minimum overall score of 7.0 in IELT. However, a 6.5 score in the Writing section of the test will be accepted alongside a 7.0 score in each of the Reading, Listening, and Speaking sections of the test.

The change took effect on 5th December 2018. The NMC has pointed out that it will consider IELTS test results that are under two years old from that date that meets the new requirements. 

If you are considering working in the UK healthcare sector, please get in touch with us to find out more about the NMC change and how the British Council and IELTS can help you achieve your ambition.
