HCPC requires proof of English language proficiency, typically through an IELTS score of 7.0 (with no element below 6.5). Speech and language therapists require a score of 8.0 (with no element below 7.5). Alternative tests like TOEFL IBT are also accepted.
You can find resources and information about English language exams, including IELTS and TOEFL IBT, on the HCPC website to help you prepare effectively.
