What is IELTS UKVI? It’s IELTS for UK Visas and Immigration

If you are looking to study or work abroad in the UK, you may need to apply for a UK Visa and demonstrate that you have met the required level of English by taking a Home Office approved Secure English Language Test (SELT), such as IELTS UKVI (Academic and General Training) or IELTS Life Skills.

Is there a difference in test format between IELTS and IELTS UKVI?

IELTS and IELTS UKVI are the same in terms of format, content, scoring and level of difficulty. However, the Test Report Form which contains your results is slightly different to show that you have taken the test at an official IELTS UKVI location, which is approved by the UK Home Office.

Which test format should I take?

If you are a student, please check with your university / college / school which test you need before booking.

If you are applying for a Student Visa (Tier 4) at a higher education institution to enter directly onto a bachelor or postgraduate degree at a university that is a Tier 4 Sponsor, you must meet the English language level set by the institution. All British universities and colleges accept IELTS Academic results This means you may not need to take an IELTS UKVI (Academic) test but can submit an IELTS Academic result.

If you are NOT a student,  please check which test format you need with the organisations you are applying to before booking the test.
