Secure English Language Test

What is the Secure English Language Test?

The Secure English Language Test (SELT) is a test approved by UK Visas and Immigration for Leave to Remain, British Citizen and Tier 1, 2 and 4 visa applications. The SELT can be taken at Trinity College London, a trusted partner of SI-UK.

Different Types of SELT

- Graded Examinations in Spoken English

The Trinity Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) exam tests the English speaking and listening skills of people whose first language is not English. They focus on building motivation and confidence in using English, enabling students to chart their progress from beginner to proficiency. 

The exams take the form of an unscripted conversation with an examiner, covering various topics and tasks. They are open to anyone aged 5 or older and are designed to be inclusive and relevant to every learner.

The GESE Exam information booklet sets out the content and format of the exams, and contains guidance notes for teachers and the exam rules and regulations. GESE exams are available in many countries and can be taken annually at Trinity exam centres.

- Integrated Skills in English

Integrated Skills in English (ISE) is a four skills qualification intended for young people and adults - typically at school, college or university. It is also suitable for teachers who require a respected English language qualification. 

ISE assesses students’ ability to interact in English authentically and meaningfully through integrated reading and writing tasks and integrated speaking and listening tasks. Preparing for ISE builds real-life English skills and transferable skills required for academic study and employability.
