Using your UK job offer

We may be able to accept an offer of employment if you’re applying for registration. If you're applying to take the PLAB test, you can’t use your offer of employment to demonstrate your knowledge of English. 

You can only use your offer of employment as evidence of your knowledge of English if it is from a UK healthcare organisation. This organisation must be a designated body.

You will need to submit:

  • a written copy of the job offer
  • a completed English language reference form from the doctor who appointed you that has been endorsed by the Responsible Officer at the employing organisation.

If you are not able to meet this criteria, you may be able to submit other evidence. Or you can sit the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or Occupational English Test (OET). 

Please note that if you’ve previously sat the IELTS or OET test and failed to achieve our minimum scores or grades in either test, it is unlikely that we will accept this evidence and we strongly recommend that you re-sit either test.
