List of tests and test centres approved by UK Visas and Immigration to show that applicants have the required level of English for their visa has been published on the UKVI website on 19 June. Please check the list for available test centres outside of UK here.
ISTP is currently closed to new applications and current applicants will not be matched with placements scheduled to start before October 2020. You must have a valid IELTS/OET certificate at the time you submit your application to the GMC for registration. Given these timescales, you may consider to taking your IELTS / OET again before it expires.
There is no specific deadline to submit your IELTS/ OET test results. However, the ISTP Team will not be able to assess your application until all your supporting documents (including your IELTS/OET test certificate) have been submitted.
We are not responsible for issuing IELTS/OET test result certificates and therefore cannot advise on this. You should seek advice and further clarification from the organisation that issued your certificate.
Applications for ALL specialties are now closed. We will not be accepting new applications until further notice.
