Cambridge English Examinations

Who are they for?

 

The University of Cambridge FCE, CAE, and CPE exams offer an important English language qualification for life. These are the only exams to be directly tied to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), and because they are recognised by employers around the world, a Cambridge ESOL qualification is the perfect addition to any CV. We also offer a range of Cambridge Preparation courses.


If you are taking a Cambridge exam to study in the UK, or to support a UK visa or immigration application, contact our exams department before applying on 0131 243 9994.
