Immigration: Take your SELT at Trinity College London

SUPPORT: Trinity College

TRINITY PROVIDES Secure English Language Tests (SELTs) across the UK. SELTs are taken by people who need to demonstrate their English language level for the purpose of obtaining British Citizenship, Settlement or a visa for work or study.

The SELTs Trinity offer are:

GESE: Graded Examinations in Spoken English – approved for British Citizenship, Settlement and visa applications - a six minute (A1), seven minute (A2), or 10 minute (B1) one-to-one speaking and listening test.

Last year the Home Office announced that from May 2017 non-EEA nationals need to pass a SELT in speaking and listening at level A2 after two-and-a-half years in the UK in order to qualify for further leave to remain on the five-year partner or parent route to settlement. Trinity’s GESE Grade 3 (A2) SELT is approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) for this purpose. Trinity’s GESE Grade 3 (A2) SELT is a seven-minute speaking and listening test where the candidate has a one-to-one conversation with a Trinity examiner.

For Trinity’s GESE exams, candidates receive provisional results on the same day and certificates are usually sent within seven days.

ISE: Integrated Skills in English – approved for Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 4 visa applications - A contemporary four-skills qualification testing reading, writing, speaking and listening.

For Trinity’s ISE exams, results/certificates are usually sent within 21 days.

Trinity’s ISE I (B1) SELT is also approved by Transport for London (TfL) for new and renewal private hire driver licence applications. Further information can be viewed at
