On 20 February 2015, the UK government announced important changes to Secure English Language Tests (SELT) for visa purposes. (see STOP PRESS) If you make a visa application to stay or move to the UK, you need to be aware of changes made by United Kingdom Visas & Immigration (UKVI). Information relating to these changes can be found at the following links - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-applying-for-uk-visa-approved-english-language-tests and www.ielts.org/uk

Non EU Candidates wishing to make direct application (not pre sessional) applications to university should be ok with a test at this centre. Candidates wishing to emigrate from the UK should also be ok. Similarly candidates applying for professional registration should be ok. However, we advise you to check with your 'end user'. Normal cancellation fee penalties apply.

EU candidates should have no problem with any use of the IELTS test from this centre with the exception of cases of naturalisation as a British citizen.
