English language and English tests

We are pleased to introduce the BCU EPT Online Test. The online test will allow you to take your test at home. You can find more information and book a test on this page.

English language tests in the United Kingdom

Please report to the test location for 9.00am to have your photo IDs and payment confirmation* checked. The test will begin at exactly 9.30am and any late applicants will be refused entry.

Speaking tests will be recorded (audio only) and used for staff training and quality purposes. By registering for the test, you give your consent to be recorded.

*The £55 test fee should be paid online before the test day. A link to the online payment will be provided with your test application confirmation via email.
No cash payment will be accepted. Please ensure that your payment is completed before the test day, or you will not be allowed to take the test.

Additional support

Please note, if you may require additional support due to a disability, we will usually need a minimum of 10 working days before the test date to identify and put this in place.
