Study in the UK

You can use LanguageCert Academic or LanguageCert International ESOL as part of your UK Student visa application, if you are going to study a course at degree level or above, at a Higher Education Institution (HEI) that is a UKVI 'Licensed Sponsor'.

If you are planning to take a foundation, pathway or other below degree-level course, or you plan to study at an institution that is not a Higher Education Institution (HEI), you may need to take a Secure English Language Test (SELT), in which case you can use LanguageCert Academic SELT UKVI or LanguageCert International ESOL SELT to support your visa application.

Please always check with your UK Higher Education Institution (HEI) to confirm their specific English requirements.
