The UK government has confirmed new requirements for secure English language testing for visa and immigration purposes. These requirements reduce the number of tests on the list of Secure English Language Tests (SELT) which are required for many categories of visa, and bring in additional requirements for the way the tests are administered.
Cambridge English has worked with our IELTS partners, British Council and IDP: IELTS Australia, to meet these new requirements.
The key features of the new arrangements are:
The first IELTS and IELTS Life Skills exams under the new arrangements will be run in late April 2015.
IELTS and IELTS Life Skills are ideal tests for UK visas and immigration purposes. They are designed to ensure that candidates have the skills they need for success in an English speaking environment, and that they can use the language effectively in a wide range of different contexts. IELTS has been in operation for over 25 years and is recognised by more than 9,000 organisations.
