Which exam delivery do I choose for my UK Student visa?
You can use LanguageCert IESOL SELT (UKVI), Online (OLP) or Onsite (CB/PB) 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 IESOL SELT (UKVI) to support your visa application.
