This means that candidates with this high-level English qualification can continue to use C1 Advanced for study, work and migration to Australia.
C1 Advanced, is one of our Cambridge English Qualifications, developed by Cambridge University Press & Assessment, a department of Cambridge University. It is an in-depth, high-level qualification that shows you have the language skills that employers and universities are looking for. It is recognised by thousands of educational institutions, businesses and government departments around the world as proof of English language ability.
