What is the Progress Test?
If you are currently studying at UAL, and want to progress to the next level of university study (e.g. from Foundation to BA, from undergraduate to postgraduate) you can take UAL’s Progress Test to achieve the IELTS equivalent score required for the next level.
The Progress Test covers 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.

We do not issue certificates for this test. The UAL Progress Test is an internal test and your results are sent directly to admissions. If you are applying for a student visa application, UAL admissions will vouch for your level of English in the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS).
