All test reports must be no more than 2 years old. A list of these can be found on the UK Border Agency website. If you have never taken one of these tests before, you can get an initial idea of your level by using the Common European Framework self-assessment grid which gives you a level for each skill (e.g. listening B1/writing B2 etc.) However, please note that this is not a secure English language test and it is not sufficient evidence of your level of English for visa requirements. If you require a Tier 4 student visa, your qualification must be one of the secure English language tests accepted by UK Border Agency: UK Border Agency Tier 4 English Language requirements UKBA list of approved English language tests For further information about English language requirements, please contact the Recruitment and International Office: pgadmissions@glasgow.ac.uk
