Important UKVI announcement

Following the recently discovered criminal / fraudulent activities around the English Language Tests the University would like to draw your attention to the following:

The UKVI has suspended all visa applications submitted with ETS TOEIC/TOEFL certificates as evidence of the English Language requirement where the application is from a student already in the UK. This is regardless of when the test was taken; no applications will be approved until the investigation over this matter is concluded, therefore the normal 8-week visa decision deadline cannot be guaranteed.

Where students have already submitted an application they will have to decide if they wish to wait for this matter to be resolved or provide alternative evidence (not from ETS) that they meet the English Language requirement so their case can be progressed. If a student has not yet applied but has a genuine ETS TOEIC/TOEFL qualification then they can still apply but a decision will not be made on their case until this matter has been resolved.

If students decide to take a new test with a different provider, they are responsible for the test fee themselves and that if they decide to withdraw their visa application, there will be no refund of the application fee.

For individuals who are both applying for a visa and testing outside the UK, there is no change. The Home Office has confirmed that TOEFL and TOEIC tests taken outside the UK may continue to be used when applying for a visa at an overseas office and the application will be reviewed by immigration officials as before.
