Medical English


Our Medical English language courses are designed for medical professionals and university students who wish to improve their English language skills in a specific context.

We run a 3-week course in January and an intensive 2 week programme in July. If you cannot commit to either of these dates, you could try a combination of General English for 24 lessons per week and an additional 4 lessons of Medical English

OET Preparation

During the course you will study a wide range of medical language, with a specific focus on ways of communicating effectively with patients and their relatives. You will improve your reading, writing and listening skills whilst learning vocabulary and increasing your accuracy in your use of grammar. You will be given strategies on how to approach the different parts of the test, and you will complete a full practice test, after which you will receive detailed feedback and further practice to ensure the best possible result in the exam.

Students will have the opportunity to sit for the exam at the end of these courses. These courses follow our intensive timetable of 28 lessons per week/23 hours 20 minutes per week.
