What is the RGU English Language Proficiency Test?

The Robert Gordon University English Language Proficiency Test can be taken in the student’s home country under secure conditions or on campus at RGU in Aberdeen at scheduled times.

This test assesses the English language level of candidates in the four skills of listening, speaking, writing and reading. This is not an IELTS test, but is written and scored in order to provide the University with an equivalency score; both overall and in each of the four components.

  • Do not have an up to date Secure English Language Test (SELT)
