Hi,

Unfortunately the NMC are quite strict on the IELTS and you need a score of 7 in each of the modules before they’ll proceed with your registration as you must demonstrate an ability to read, write, speak and listen to English.

Angry Re: Nurses & Social Workers Returning to the UK

hi AAMarie,
thanks for answering back,yes i know they are really strict about the IELTS. i really find it very stupid to ask 7 in each modules because most university is asking an overall 6 and 6.5,it doesn't matter if you score 6 or 7 in writing,listening,reading and speaking.All that matter if you score the overall 7 in the exam. Anyway I think it's discrimination what they are doing. People from EU sometimes they can't read,write and speak proper english they are not asked to do the exam.Moreover, I have a grade C in english (O level) and my nursing course was conducted in english too.

You may call it discrimination but there are a few countries now requiring a 7 in all modules. Each country is entitled to ask what requirements they want. Be aware if not from the EU and don't have experience in the short-list occupation then may have a hard time finding a employer willing to assist with a work permit
