Introducing Skills for English (UKVI) a new UK Home Office Approved English Language Qualification available outside the UK – Simple, Quick, Affordable. 

More choice of location, more choice of test dates for exam events; Skills for English (UKVI) is a qualification that enables your students to demonstrate that their knowledge of English language meets your admissions requirements.

Not only is Skills for English simple, quick, and affordable for your students, but it has been designed it to make the process of organising your student’s tests and helping them meet their visa application requirements as intuitive and straightforward as possible for you too.

  • Wide availability of test centres and sessions (our test centre network covers 21 countries all with regular test sessions available)
  • Test levels matched exactly to visa type required
  • A one-session test that is entirely computer-based with no examiner/assessor present
  • Auto-marked reading and listening skills, with speaking and writing skills marked by expert assessors who do not see any of your students’ personal details
  • A quick turn-around on marking with results being available in as little as 14 days


All Skills for English (UKVI) tests use computer-based delivery for all skills. Reading and listening are automatically marked during the test session itself; speaking and writing are recorded digitally during the test session and marked by trained assessors (who have no visibility of your candidate’s personal details) after the test is finished. This means students can move through each of the skills sections in turn in a single test session and enables us to return results in as little as 14 days.

Results reporting for Skills for English is 100% secure and customisable, we can provide a bespoke report of your students’ results, and are developing new ways to easily confirm test results.

Skills for English is mapped to the ‘Common European Framework of Reference for Languages’ (CEFR) for UKVI purposes, and is also mapped comprehensively to other international English language qualifications.  You can see a comparison table here.
