RGU English Language Proficiency Test

We run English Language test in cities across the world for current offer holders who want to study on our degree programmes.

What is the RGU English Language Proficiency Test?

The RGU English Language Proficiency Test can be taken in a student’s home country under secure conditions or on campus at RGU at scheduled times.

This test assesses the English language level of candidates in the four skills of listening, speaking, writing and reading. This is not an IELTS test, but is written and scored in order to provide the University with an equivalency score; both overall and in each of the four components.

Who is this test for?

This test is for students who:

  • Hold a conditional offer from Robert Gordon University, based on meeting English language requirements of the course they hope to study
  • Do not have an up to date Secure English Language Test (SELT)
  • Have an expired SELT
  • Are unable to take the SELT due to time constraints
  • Have not taken another RGU English Language Test in the last three months

When and where do these tests take place?

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are closely monitoring the countries we can run our RGU English Language Proficiency Test for the coming intakes. At this time, it is only possible to run the tests in: UK, China, Mexico, Nigeria.

We will update this list in line with public health guidelines to add or remove countries as advised. If you are from one of these countries, kindly progress to the Register For a Test section.

If you are not from one of the mentioned countries, we advise you consider the other English tests that are available at this time.
