Higher education in the UK and UCAS points

Are you hoping to study at a UK university? Students applying for a degree or higher-level course must meet the English language requirements of the institution they apply to. Almost all universities accept C1 Advanced and C2 Proficiency from CAE for entrance purposes. But did you know Cambridge English exams can be used to gain UCAS Tariff points?

UCAS Tariff points explained

UCAS Tariff points are often used by UK universities and colleges to set their entry requirements and for making offers. One-third of courses in the UCAS system use the Tariff entry requirement. Instead of requesting grades such as 2 As and a B, universities may express their offer as a number of points.

Companies and academic institutions including Cambridge University accept C2 Proficiency as evidence you have mastered English to an exceptional level and are able to work in the most senior academic and professional environments.
