Study Online English


What is the SELT?

For UK Visa or Citizenship Application

For visa or citizenship applications, you may need to prove your knowledge of English by passing a Secure English Language Test (SELT).

The Secure English Language Test (SELT) is considered by the UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) authorities as proof of an applicant’s knowledge of English. The difference between a SELT and other types of language tests is that a Secure English Language Test is officially recognised and trusted by the British government.

The level of test you will need, known as the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) level, will depend on the route you are applying for.

Always check the GOV.UK website for the latest language level requirements for the visa you are applying for.
