Unless you have already evidenced that your knowledge of English is level B2 or above in a previous successful application, you may need to show your knowledge of English. This can be done if you have:
- passed an approved English language test with at least CEFR level B2 in reading, writing, speaking and listening; or
- a GCSE, A level, Scottish National Qualification level 4 or 5, Scottish Higher or Advanced Higher in English , gained through study undertaken in a UK school when you were under 18; or
- a degree level academic qualification that was taught in English and is recognised by Ecctis (Formerly UK NARIC) as being equal to a UK bachelor’s degree, master’s degree or PhD.
The Home Office provides a list of countries here which are exempt from the English knowledge requirement.
If you are unsure which test you should take, please contact our immigration specialists.
