This test assesses your speaking, writing, grammar, and listening skills to decide which course level is right for you, and will best help you achieve the test result you are aiming for.

English placement test results are valid for six months. If you have already taken an IELTS or TOEFL test, you don’t need to take a placement test if your IELTS/TOEFL certificate is less than one year old. Please contact a Student Recruitment Consultant for further details.
