Proving Your English Language Level for UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI)

Are you planning to apply for a UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) application and need to demonstrate your English language proficiency? Look no further than the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), an approved Secure English Language Test (SELT) recognized by UKVI.

IELTS Test Locations Authorized by UKVI

If an IELTS test result is required for your UKVI application, it must be taken at a specific test location authorized by UKVI. Ensure that you choose the appropriate test type based on your visa application requirements.

Tier 4 Student Visa Requirement

For applicants seeking a Tier 4 student visa for a program of study at degree level or above at a Higher Education Institution, it’s essential to verify the English language requirement of your chosen institution. Many institutions do not mandate a SELT for this purpose.

Types of IELTS Tests

  1. IELTS Academic for UK Visas and Immigration: Suitable for individuals intending to study in the UK below degree level or those required to take a SELT test for a direct UKVI application. This test evaluates Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking skills.

  2. IELTS General Training for UK Visas and Immigration: Designed for applicants planning to migrate to the UK or pursue training or studies below degree level, necessitating a direct application to UK Visas and Immigration. The test assesses Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking abilities.
