Even if you were born or studied in an English speaking country like the USA or the UK, you'll still need to provide evidence of your English language competency.  This is an Australian Government requirement, and guarantees you 10 points when applying to DIBP.

When applying, you must submit a high-quality colour scan of your test results. We'll complete the necessary security checks to validate and confirm your results.

We accept:

  • Pearson PTE / IELTS tests undertaken within the past two years
  • TOEFL / Cambridge CAE tests undertaken within the past three years

For Pearson (PTE) holders
Please remember that if you're applying with a Pearson (PTE) English language result, you must authorise us to view and verify the results.  This can be done by accessing your PTE academic account.
