UCA has its own English language test, which is accepted as proof of English level to meet our course entry requirements. Although the format and marking scale are similar to IELTS, the test content is designed specifically for UCA art and design and business students.
The UCA English Language Test consists of four sections:
Listening: four parts; 40 minutes
Reading: three texts; 60 minutes
Writing: one 250-word essay; 40 minutes
Speaking: 15 minutes
UCA English language tutors conduct the individual speaking tests via TEAMS, WeChat, Zoom, or other video conferencing software.
Certificates and results are usually issued by UCA within 3 working days. Test results are usually valid for 12 months only.
The test costs £60.
Please note that you will be able to take a maximum of two tests.
