Covid-19 and at home language tests

Some testing centres have tests that you can take at home, such as TOEFL iBT ​​–​ Special Home Edition, OET@Home and IELTS Indicator. We do not currently accept these tests.

For a list of the tests we do accept please see the pages below.​​

Score Ranges​

English testing organisations will sometimes adjust their score ranges as new research and knowledge about English testing is developed. We consider these changes carefully before we make any adjustments to the scores required for our English Levels. Where it is decided that scores will change, a notice will be put on this website with information on how it may impact yo​u.


You will need to meet our English language requirements to apply for:

  • student visas
  • skilled visas
  • some permanent visas

Check the eligibility pages in the visas you wish to apply for, to see the level required.
