English Language Tests
The UK Visas & Immigration website has a list of English language tests approved for immigration purposes. This is a process for students whose native language is not English.
Individual Universities and Colleges might also have language requirements if English isn’t a student’s native language – these requirements may be part of a conditional offer to study.
For any students who are worried about the level of English language required, many Universities and Colleges offer language courses before the beginning of the main course to help students get to the right level. Contact the University or College for more details.
