Divine Trainings International ESOL SELT B2 (Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking)

A 4-skills (Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking) exam in English, aligned to the B2 level of the CEFR*. It is a Secure English Language Test (SELT) for UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) delivered through Divine Training’s global network of SELT centers.

About the exam:

  • Consists of a Written (Listening, Reading, Writing) and Spoken (Speaking) component
  • Both components can be taken on the same day or within 14 days of each other

CEFR level B2 is the minimum requirement for the following visa types:

  • Tier 2 (Minister of Religion)
  • Innovator
  • Start-up
  • Student visa (this route replaces Tier 4) -(below degree level)

Applicants with a higher language level can take a C1 or C2 Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking exam, which also satisfies the application requirement.

After the exam, candidates receive a Test Report displaying their score and unique reference number (URN). The URN must be included in the visa application.

Visa requirement information is subject to change. Applicants should refer to UK Government guidance on English language exams for visas and are responsible for ensuring they take the correct exam.

Candidates are advised to contact their sponsors to confirm which CEFR level is required before registering for an exam.

*Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), developed by the Council of Europe, is widely used to describe levels of language proficiency.
