English Language Test at the British University of Bahrain

English Language Test | BUB

The exclusive BUB English Language Test can help you through the British University Admissions process.

It is a BUB entrance requirement that our applicants demonstrate their English Language ability, which is usually with an IELTS certificate.
However, we understand that obtaining an IELTS certificate may be difficult or time consuming.
Therefore, The British University of Bahrain and the BUB Head of English Language – Sarah Burton, are here to help.
Our own English Language Proficiency Test is available, you can book your place NOW.

This test focuses on the four key areas of English language – Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.
Successful completion of our English test will demonstrate your English language ability and allow you to continue through the Application process to become a Student at BUB.
