Covid impact to test centres

What to do if you are unable to access a language testing centre.

You may have planned to take an English language test in person at a testing centre in order to meet our requirements.

Depending on local government policies, some test centres may be closed due to the impact of Covid-19.

There are other ways that you can fulfil our English language requirements if you are unable to complete a test in person.  

Take an approved English language test online

If you cannot attend a testing centre in person, you can fulfil our English language requirements by taking an approved online test instead.

Online tests that meet our English language requirements

  • IELTS (Academic) Online test

  • TOEFL iBT Home Edition test (previously the Special Home Edition)

Please note that, unfortunately, we do not accept the TOEFL MyBest Score test.
