The Home Office has announced changes to the Secure English Language Tests (SELT) required by some visa applicants.

Two new providers have been selected to deliver approved Secure English Language Tests and will replace current providers from 6 April 2015. 

The two new test providers are:
• Trinity College London (for customers applying in the UK only)
• IELTS SELT Consortia (for visa customers applying outside or inside the UK)

The new SELT test centres are spread throughout the UK and the rest of the world and will continue to provide access for applicants, including a number of new ‘pop-up’ centres in locations where testing was previously not available.

Applicants should go to the SELT page on this website for further information and to find out where their nearest test centre is located. Further information for customers located outside the UK on how to book a test will be available on the IELTS website later this month. Transitional arrangements

Applicants who have already taken their language test on or before 5 April 2015 with a current approved provider will be able to use their certificates until 5 November 2015.
Customers who require a SELT should only book a test with a new provider from 6 April. Tests taken with old providers from 6 April will not be accepted by the Home Office.
