Trinity College London is committed to ensuring that every candidate who comes to take their Secure English Language Test (SELT) does so in a safe and supportive environment. Over the last year we have worked hard to make sure that our test centres are Covid safe by following all government guidelines in relation to wearing masks, strict social distancing, and regular deep cleaning of all items in each centre. The safety of our candidates, examiners and staff has been at the heart of everything we do.
The UK government has announced that from 19 July 2021 all Covid-19 restrictions will be removed. We acknowledge that many people will be cautious about the lifting of restrictions, so Trinity SELT has decided to continue to operate our SELT test centres under the current guidelines to ensure the continued safety of everyone. All current measures will remain in place and we strongly encourage all candidates to continue to use masks within our centres.
If you are concerned about any aspect of the exam experience please do contact our Customer Care team, who will do everything they can to support you.
We look forward to continuing to support your English language journey, as you navigate your next steps and move forward with your life here in the UK.
In response to the situation created by COVID-19, we have introduced a way for you to take your English speaking and listening test in a Trinity SELT test centre during this time of pandemic.
You will now take your one-to-one speaking and listening test with a Trinity examiner online via video conference at our UKVI-approved SELT test points. There is no change to the exam length, content and skills assessed for Trinity’s GESE speaking and listening exams online.
Some aspects of the exam day experience will necessarily differ from standard processes. We explain here what to expect and what we are asking you to do support the safeguarding measures we are putting in place.
You should prepare for your English language exam in the usual way. Check you are preparing for the right test at the right level here. Find additional Trinity resources from Trinity here. GESE and ISE level B1 candidates can download or copy a simple version of the standard Topic discussion form template to prepare and bring with them on exam day.
There is currently availability across Trinity SELT test points 7 days a week depending on location, tests can be booked here at SELT Bookings.
