BCU-approved English proficiency test – OIDI ELLT


Thank you for your interest in taking the BCU English Proficiency Test (BCU EPT).


The BCU English Proficiency Test is used to assess your English language ability in the four skills of listening, reading, writing and speaking.  Each part of the test is designed to activate the language skills you will need to begin a course of study at Birmingham City University, and it will report on your current level in each skill.   


There is no single pass mark for everyone because different courses at the university will require you to achieve a different level in the test. The test can be used as evidence of English language ability for any undergraduate or postgraduate course at Birmingham City University. 


For further information about the test and to see practice tests. please see the BCU EPT Test Guidelines on our website: English language and English tests | Birmingham City University (bcu.ac.uk)
