English language proficiency

The Medical Board of Australia requires international medical graduates to provide proof of English language proficiency for all registration categories unless it has granted an exemption. Therefore, all applicants are advised to make arrangements to obtain that proof before they apply under any of the assessment pathways.

English language proficiency is a requirement of the Medical Board of Australia, not of the AMC. Therefore, the Medical Board is the body responsible for granting exemptions from its requirement.

The Medical Board of Australia’s English language proficiency requirements, including its conditions for granting exemptions, are set out in detail in its English Language Skills Registration Standard available on its website.
