Cambridge English Qualifications

Cambridge English Qualifications

Cambridge English Qualifications are in-depth exams that make learning English enjoyable, effective and rewarding. Each exam focuses on a level of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), helping you to improve your speaking, writing, reading and listening skills step-by-step.

Cambridge English Qualifications are equally suitable for both European and overseas students over the age of 16 who wish to improve their English skills for personal, professional, social or academic purposes.

Whatever your goals or ambitions, Cambridge English Qualifications are a mark of excellence, accepted and trusted by thousands of organisations worldwide.

At West London College, we are an authorised open centre for Cambridge English Qualifications and offer exams throughout the year. Our exam fees are highly competitive, with small and comfortable exam rooms and large waiting areas and mindfulness rooms. We also offer speaking tests on the same day, face-to-face.

We offer all Cambridge English exams in both computer and paper-based versions throughout the year.
