English language tests

Find the English language test that suits your needs, whether you want to study, work or migrate.

We offer two English language tests at Reading:

  • the Test of English for Educational Purposes (TEEP)
  • the International English Language Testing System (IELTS).


You can use the TEEP as an entry qualification for degree courses at Reading and at a number of other UK universities. It:

  • has been designed specifically to assess your academic English language skills for university study
  • delivers your results in just 10 days.


The IELTS test is widely accepted around the world and you can use it as an entry qualification for study, work and migration.

You can take the IELTS test at our conveniently located test centre on a choice of dates throughout the year.
