Cambridge English exams are recognised by over 20,000 universities, employers and governments around the world. Our English language tests can open doors to higher education, improve employment opportunities, and because they are globally recognised, can increase your choices for study or work.
You may need to apply for a visa before travelling to study or work in another country. As part of your application, you may have to prove your language ability is at a particular level, or your language skills will be taken into account in other ways when your visa application is considered.
Since the 6 April 2015, IELTS for UKVI (IELTS is jointly managed by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment), and a new test called IELTS Life Skills are the only Cambridge English exams included on the UK government list of Secure English Language Tests.
