“Our C1 Advanced qualification offers endless opportunities for our candidates to study, live and work in Australia. It is the test that really helps candidates develop the language skills they need to be successful in an English-speaking country and assure recognising organisations such as the Australian Department of Home Affairs of our candidate’s English language ability” commented Carmen Le, Recognition Manager, Southeast Asia & Pacific.
In addition to the recognition from the Australian government, C1 Advanced is also accepted by 100% of Australian universities for admissions into undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Candidates can also use C1 Advanced results to get their skill assessed for migration with the following Australian professional bodies:
C1 Advanced is available at 27 exam centres across Australia. The Speaking test is taken face to face, with two candidates and two examiners. This creates a more realistic measure of candidates’ ability to use English to communicate.
More than 8,000 educational institutions, businesses and government departments around the world accept C1 Advanced as proof of high-level achievement in learning English. Every university in the UK and Ireland accepts C1 Advanced from EU students. The majority also accept the exam from students from outside of the EU.
