English Language Test | The British University of Bahrain

English Language Test | BUB

The BUB English Language Test can help you through our Admissions process.

We usually require our applicants to demonstrate their English Language ability with an IELTS certificate.
However, we understand that obtaining an IELTS certificate may not be possible because of the current restrictions.
Therefore, The British University of Bahrain and the BUB Head of English Language, Sarah Burton, are here to help.
We have created an English Language Entrance Test, available now, online.

The test focuses on the four key areas of language: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Successful completion of this entrance test will demonstrate your English language ability. This will also allow you to continue through our application process.

If you have any questions about the BUB English Language Entrance Test, please contact our Head of English Language – E-Mail Sarah Burton
Alternatively, please contact any member of the BUB Team here – Contact Us

This is NOT an IELTS Test | This English Test is for BUB entrance purposes
