The London School of English is an approved Pearson PTE Academic course provider

We are pleased to announce that LSE is one of a select number of UK providers approved by Pearson to offer PTE Academic preparation courses.

PTE Academic is a new, international, entirely computer-based academic English language test. The test measures the listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills of test takers who are non-native speakers of English and need to demonstrate their level of academic English proficiency.

PTE Academic delivers a real-life measure of test takers’ language ability and is recognised by over 95% of UK universities and colleges, making it a convenient alternative to the popular IELTS test, which we also offer. The test is also recognised by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) for Tier 4 (student visa) applications when students are required to demonstrate English language competency at a minimum of CEF level B1 or B2.

The exam lasts for just 3 hours, is flexible in terms of exam dates and results are generally available in under 5 working days – significantly quicker than the 2 weeks quoted by IELTS.

Our first course will commence in June and the second in September - full details, including dates, entry requirements, course content, tuition and examination fees can be found at:
