The Essex English Language Assessment is compulsory for all international students with English as an additional language.

If you are an international student then you probably already have an English language certificate of proficiency such as IELTS or TOEFL. However, like most other British universities we require all newly registered students whose first language is not English to sit a short English language assessment of our own.

If your first language is not English, you'll need to attend this assessment briefing session on Monday 7 October at one of the following times:



Both sessions take place in GB.2.19
