Admissions
Assess students’ language levels on admission.
Graduation
Check your students meet exit requirements.
Recognised by CRUE and ACLES at Spanish universities
Cambridge English Linguaskill is recognised by ACLES and CRUE. ACLES is the Asociación de Centros de Lenguas en la Enseñanza Superior and CRUE is the Conferencia de Rectores de las Universidades Españolas. Both institutions approve which foreign language certificates comply with the quality requirements and levels set out by the Common European Framework of Reference (A1 to C2).

Linguaskill meets the criteria and has been approved by both organisations as an English language test. This means that if you take Linguaskill it should be accepted by your university.
