Changes to secure English language test providers for UK visas

UK Visas and Immigration is making changes to the Secure English Language Tests (SELT) required by some visa customers.

Two new providers have been selected to deliver approved Secure English Language Tests and will replace current providers from 6 April 2015.

The two new test providers are:

  • Trinity College London (in the UK only)
  • IELTS SELT Consortium (in the UK and the Rest of the World)

The new SELT test centres are spread throughout the UK and the rest of the world and will continue to provide easy access for applicants, including a number of new ‘pop-up’ centres in locations where testing was previously not available.

Applicants who take the language test on or before 5 April 2015 with the current providers will be able to use their certificates until 5 November 2015.

Customers who require a SELT should only book a test with a new provider from 6 April. Tests taken with old providers from 6 April will not be acceptable with your visa application.
