Course Assessment

Participants can choose whether or not they undertake an assessment and in which areas of English they wish to be assessed. Participants who choose to be assessed will receive a formal certificate stating the level of English they have achieved in the areas they have been assessed.

Assessment can be continuous throughout the course and/or based on coursework or a test.

Progression onto Future Studies

To progress onto an academic course at Brunel you will need to pass the required BrunELT score to meet the language requirements for your academic programme. You will usually not need to take any other English Test.

To apply for English for University Students, you should:
