Middlesex University – Free Online English Test

We found that some applicants may have difficulties to apply for IELTS tests during the pandemic. We can now provide our Free Online English Test for our Offer Holders.

Our test is very similar to IELTS Academic test and can be used for direct entry onto the degree course. I recommend only the offer holders, who have good English level and are confident to obtain IELTS 6 or above, to apply for this test.

In each session, the Reading/ Writing exam will take place on the first day of the test (19th July, 16th August, 13th Sept and 4th October) and the listening/ speaking tests will take place over the following two weeks.
