As part of your application, you will need to demonstrate that you can speak English to the required standard. Currently, the rules require that you can speak English to Level B1 of the Common European Framework of Languages.
Your qualification will be valid only if your English exam is taken through an approved (SELT) Provider.
There are some, limited, exceptions, where you can be exempted from meeting the English language requirement, as follows:
You do not need an English Language test if you:
- Are a national of a majority English speaking country
- Are aged under 18 or over 65
- Have a long-term physical or mental condition
- Hold a degree or any educational establishment that was taught or researched in English.
