To be advised (none currently scheduled)

To meet the needs of offshore students who are unable to take other English proficiency tests at a test centre due to centre closures, UQ's Institute of Continuing & TESOL Education (ICTE) is currently offering the LinguaSkill test.

The LinguaSkill test consists of four test modules – Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. The test can be taken on your own computer at home and is monitored by a human proctor online through ProctorU®. Note that Linguaskill does not meet UQ entry requirements for programs needing "higher than minimum entry scores" - Ensure you check your entry requirements prior to taking a Linguaskill test.

Test Format:

Part 1 - Reading and Listening (combined): 60-85 mins approx

Part 2 - Writing: 45 mins

Part 3 - Speaking: 15 mins approx
