Survey of Commonwealth Students and Admissions

7) When you first entered the UK to pursue further and higher education, what level of education did you apply for? *
PLEASE READ FIRST: A SELT (Secure English Language Test) is an international English language test which the UK Visa and Immigration Service identify as being proof of a student's English language proficiency. Examples of SELTs include IELTS, PTE Academic, TOEFL-iBT and TOEIC, FCE, CAE and CPE among others
12) If yes please indicate which SELT tests you took from the list
14) Which of these methods were used as a way of proving your English language proficiency when you applied to your chosen university? (tick all that apply) *
strongly agree agree disagree strongly disagree
26) Taking a SELT is simply a bureaucratic exercise to get a visa
27) Taking a SELT is a useful exercise in measuring my ability in academic English
28) Students who have had all their education in the language of English should not have to do a SELT
29) Students from Commonwealth countries should still have to do a SELT because English is not spoken widely enough in those countries
30) Students from Commonwealth countries should do a SELT because English high/secondary school qualifications from those countries cannot be guaranteed for quality.
31) A SELT test is a better indicator of a student’s academic English proficiency than a high/secondary school English qualification from their home country
32) Being taught all their school subjects in the medium of English is better proof of a student’s English proficiency than a SELT test score
