Alternative English Language testing options

We appreciate that the Covid-19 pandemic means that a number of English Language centres may currently be closed. Fortunately, a number of providers are now able to provide online assessments which we can use to assess students’ ability (for degree level and above qualifications only).

The following providers have online opportunities available, if test centres are closed in your country:

LanguageCert online
Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic

Please note that we strongly encourage students to take SELT tests as outlined in the UKVI guidance where possible. We do not accept the Duolingo test. Students enrolling on Foundation programmes (or any below degree level) are required to take an IELTS for UKVI test (Academic or General Training) or one of the Secure English Language Tests (SELT) approved by the UKVI. You can only take a SELT outside the UK with one of the following providers:

IELTS SELT Consortium
LanguageCert
Pearson
PSI Services (UK) Ltd
