Apply To The U.K.NOW And Get Deployed In 2 Months!
The U.K. is undeniably the hottest country of work destination nowadays. Thanks to the many changes that its governments and its healthcare board, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, have implemented, the UKRN application process has become much faster, easier, and less expensive. Here were the changes that they’ve made in recent years:
Lowere Required IELTS / OET Score. The required score for the IELTS / OET’s most difficult sub-test, the Writing sub-test, has been lowered from 7.0 to 6.5 for the IELTS and from B to C+ for the OET.
More Lenient CBT Retake Rule. Should you fail the CBT, you’d only have to retake the portion / s that you’ve failed in. This will lead to less topics for you to review again for and a lower exam fee for the next take.
No More IELTS / UKVI Requirement. Nurses don’t have to take the IELTS UKVI on top of the Academic IELTS anymore, to be able to get their work visas.
Dedicated Health & Care Visa for HCWs. Nurses and other health care workers were dedicated this special visa so that the U.K. government will be able to better support them. The visa has a lower cost and a fast lead time for issuance.
No More Immigration Health Surcharge. Individuals who get issued Health & Care Visas are also exempted from paying the Immigration Health Surcharge.
Shortened Processing Time. The NMC’s removal of its barcoded form requirements and assessment, which used to take up to 65 working days, has led to applicants getting deployed within 2 – 4 months. As long as they’ve already passed the IELTS / OET and CBT, this lead time range is definitely possible.
Reduced Application Costs. Due to the abovementioned changes, the total cost of applying to the U.K. has decreased from 776 – 926 GBP to 526 – 669 GBP.
U.K.’s Exemption from the HCW Deployment Cap. Even during the pandemic, the IATF has exempted the United Kingdom from the HCW deployment limit due to the two governments’ positive relationship.
The UKRN application process may be fast, easy, and cheap nowadays because of these changes, but we don’t really know until when this kind of situation will last. It pays, then, to go for a U.K. employer that doesn’t only have job vacancies today: It should also be able to recruit you in just a few months!
