Please note that as of 2011, UK Border Agency regulations for obtaining a Tier 4 General Student Visa have become more stringent – please see UKBA student entry requirements, and unfortunately we have to abide by these. If you have not studied in one of the UKBA approved list of majority English speaking countries, you will need to provide evidence of having passed an SELT (Secure English Language Test).
We require a SELT to show that you have achieved the equivalent of IELTS at 6.0 with a minimum score of 5.5 in each of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
We accept any SELT dated up to 2 years prior to the course start date. Please note that this requirement has to be met even if your previous education and studies were in an English medium institution unless you studied in one of the UKBA approved list of majority English speaking countries.
You can find a list of majority English-speaking countries approved by UKBA at http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas-immigration/studying/adult-students/can-you-apply/english-language/
We are really sorry for the inconvenience this may cause you, and encourage you to take this point into consideration at an early stage of your application process.
