ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS: SKILLED WORKERS

To meet the English language requirements, applicants must have passed a test at or above the level required for the route in which they are applying. To meet the requirements for a qualification taught in English, it must have been taught in English to the appropriate level. Where the language requirements are met, points-based system applications must be awarded 10 points. Appendix W workers are not awarded points – they either pass or fail the English language requirements.
