UK visa purposes

If you would like to, as a non EU citizen, live and work in the UK, you’ll need to prove that you have the necessary level of English. The English language level you need will depend on the type of visa you are applying for.

When you register for the exam, you must tell us that you want to use your result to support your visa, so that we can make the necessary arrangements. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use your result to support your visa application.
