English Language Examinations and Qualifications

English Language Examinations

With Trinity College London you can gain an English language certificate to prove your proficiency in speaking, listening, reading and writing.

All Trinity English language examinations form a natural part of any course of English language study, undertaken in a group or individually. Preparation for the examination supports the study programme chosen by the teacher and learner, rather than interfering with it.

There are three main suites of English Language examinations.


The Graded Examinations in Spoken English test candidates’ ability in Listening and Speaking.

There are 12 grades in all from pre A1 to C2 of the CEFR.

The exams encourage students to develop and progress by acknowledging each step forward; at every stage of the student’s development there is a chance to mark success.


Trinity’s Integrated Skills in English examinations assess Speaking, Writing, Listening and Reading.

The examination is available at 5 levels, from A2 to C2 of the CEFR.


The Spoken English for Work examination is a unique assessment of Speaking and Listening including a telephone task.

The examinations are available at four levels starting at B1 of the CEFR.
