Find out how we assess students on the English for University Study Programme.

Once the programme ends, you'll have the chance to take the English for University Study (EfUS) Exit Test, which assesses your speaking, listening, reading, writing and English usage skills.

The results are then mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

The information in the table is under review for 2021/22.
