1. Will my qualification meet the requirement?
We cannot advise about individual qualifications. Your qualification should cover speaking and listening at B1 CEFR level or above, and be on the attached list. If you are not sure if your qualification is one of those on the list, you may wish to contact the college where you studied. We will also accept:
ESOL qualifications taken in England, Wales or Northern Ireland that include speaking and listening, at or above Entry level 3, and are regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual), or the Welsh Government or the Council for Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA). They must also be listed as an ESOL qualification on the Register of Regulated Qualifications.
A National Qualification in ESOL at SCQF levels 4 or above, awarded by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).
2. Do I need to pass all parts of the qualification?
Some of the qualifications which we accept include speaking and listening as part of a wider qualification which also covers reading and writing skills, but other qualifications are available which concentrate on speaking and listening skills only. Those who are unable to demonstrate all 4 communicative skills are advised to study for a qualification that concentrates on speaking and listening skills only. We will not look at scores for each part of the test but the overall score, which must be equivalent to or above level.B1 CEFR
3. What if your website says my qualification expires after 2 years?
The expiry dates on the SELT list in Appendix O, do not apply to citizenship applications.
For Settlement applications, we will accept Level B1 qualification on the SELT list or an ESOL qualification on the OFQUAL register at Entry level 3 that has passed the expiry date, if:
The qualification has previously been accepted by us in connection with another immigration application, e.g. for entry clearance, or (if it is being presented for the first time) that is was taken in the UK, and is on the OFQUAL register.
4. I sent my documents for a previous application. Do I need to send them again?
Yes. Evidence that an English language requirement was met for entry clearance purposes is only held by the post abroad for a limited period. In addition, this information is not easily accessible to caseworkers in the UK. You should therefore send evidence of your qualification with your application.
5. Will my degree meet the requirement?
If you have a qualification that was taught or researched in English you can meet the language part of the requirement if:
- Your qualification is deemed by UK NARIC to meet the recognised standard of a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or PhD in the UK, or
- Your qualification was taught or researched in an English speaking country other than Canada (see list below).
You will need to send your certificate as evidence of your qualification.
6. How do I show that my qualification is deemed by UK NARIC to be the recognised standard?
UK NARIC regularly update the online points based calculator (which is on our website) with information about various degrees. If you obtained a degree overseas and were awarded points for your degree, and an additional ten points for English language skill, you can submit evidence from the online points calculator, together with the original degree certificate, to demonstrate that you can satisfy the English language element of the Knowledge of Language and Life in the UK (KOLL) requirement.
Alternatively, you can obtain confirmation from UK NARIC that your qualification was taught or researched in English by requesting an English Language Assessment (ELA). (UK NARIC will only issue an ELA for a degree that is comparable to a UK degree, so it will not be necessary to also request a Statement of Comparability)
7. How do I show that my qualification is equivalent to a UK degree and was taught in English, if it is not recognised by the points calculator?
You can request a Statement of Comparability from UK NARIC and a letter from the university stating that the degree was taught in English
