Secure English Language Tests (SELTs)
As of 6 April 2015 the Home Office updated the list of Secure English Language Tests (SELTs). For information on the new SELT list please go to the Home Office website.
If you are applying from outside of the UK and you require a SELT for your course then you must take the ‘IELTS for UKVI academic test’ at one of the UKVI-approved IELTS test centres (unless you took your IELTS on or before 5 April 2015). For information on approved test centres and to register for an approved IELTS test please go to the IELTS website.
If you require a SELT and have taken your English Language test on or before 5th April 2015 then it can come from the previous list of providers: 'UKVI List of approved tests and providers: up to 5 April 2015'. Your test will be valid for visa purposes until 5 November 2015.
If you are unsure as to whether the course you are applying for requires a SELT then please contact the International Office by email or by telephone on +44 113 812 1111.
