Take an English exam

Good English language skills are essential to study in the UK.

All UK universities will ask you for an English language test certificate as part of your application. The level that you need to achieve depends on the course and university you are applying for.

All UK universities accept IELTS (International English Language Testing System) as proof of English ability. IELTS is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration, accepted by more than 11,000 organisations worldwide. The British Council is a proud co-owner of IELTS.
