There are a number of globally-recognised English language qualifications which international students can take to demonstrate that they have the level of English proficiency required to work or study abroad in an English-speaking country. The two most widely used are the IELTS (International English language testing system) and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). Another alternative which is growing in popularity, particularly for students looking to study in the UK, is the CAE (Cambridge Advanced English). Find out more about the structure of the CAE Exam.

If TOEFL isn't for you, you can read our article comparing TOEFL and IELTS to see which you are better suited to. Here we compare the exams side-by-side, assessing which we think will benefit the student more as well as looking at issues regarding VISA applications for studying in the UK
