English Progress Test

Student taking a Progress test

Are you a current UAL student going to study on a new course at UAL in September or October 2019? Do you have a conditional offer because you don’t have a high enough IELTS score? If yes, we can test you at the Language Centre.

The test we run is called Progress and it tests 4 skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening. If you get the score you need on the Progress Test, you will not have to take another external test, e.g. IELTS.

The Progress Test is not the same as IELTS. Read about the Progress Test format (PDF 46KB).
