To support you in your journey to joining us at Coventry University, we are pleased to offer English Language Tests for applicants to Coventry University degree programmes.
You can book to take a Coventry University English Language test if you:

- Hold a valid IELTS certificate with a minimum of component of 5.0 for entry onto an undergraduate course or a minimum component of 5.5 for entry onto a postgraduate course. An IELTS certificate is valid for 2 years from the test date. If no IELTS certificate can be provided please contact email@example.com
- Have NOT taken the Coventry University English Language test in the last 2 months for the same academic intake
- Have NOT undertaken a pre-sessional English course at Coventry University in the last 2 months.
About the test
Similar to IELTS, the test assesses all 4 components: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. It will take up to 4 hours to complete:
- Listening (20 mins) - you will be given three recordings to listen to. You must then answer questions related to these recordings.
- Reading (60 mins) - you will be given three pieces of text to read. You must then answer questions relating to each text.
- Writing (60 mins) - you will be given two essay titles for which you will need to write an essay on the subject area.
- Speaking (10 mins) - you will have a short interview with the examiner where you will be asked questions on a variety of subjects.
Each test is timed and conducted in exam conditions.
To help you prepare and practice for your English test, we have provided samples of reading and writing questions and reading texts. These samples are designed to be similar in difficulty to the CUET, however the questions in the actual test will be different. The samples do not include speaking or listening, but do include the reading and writing elements.
You will need to bring the following documents to the test:
- Proof of your identity (passport or national identity card) at registration. You must bring the same identity document on the test day as the one recorded on your online booking form. If you do not do this you will not be allowed to take the test and you will not be eligible for a refund or transfer.
- A photocopy of your ID (passport or national identity card)
- Your original, valid IELTS certificate
- A copy of your IELTS certificate
- Your conditional offer letter from Coventry University
You will be contacted with the results of your test within 2 weeks. We will tell you if you have met the entry criteria or not. We will not provide a breakdown of your results. Results are not transferable to any other Institution; they are only valid for study at Coventry University, Coventry University London, CU Coventry and CU Scarborough.
If you wish to discuss your suitability for the test or to find out more information, please contact us.
