SWELT Tier 4 Visa Test

SWELT, the Swansea University English Language Test.

SWELT is ideal if you

  • already know that you want to study at Swansea University and are looking for an alternative to IELTS as fulfilment of your English language entry requirement
  • are interested in studying for a bachelor or postgraduate degree in the UK, are interested in studying at one of the UK’s leading universities and would like an alternative to IELTS

SWELT is the official English language test for international students wishing to study at Swansea University. The test is designed, administered and marked by English Language Training Services staff and is accepted by Swansea University as an alternative to IELTS as part of your application for a CAS.

Swansea University is a Licenced Sponsor under Tier 4 of the Points Based Immigration System and therefore accepts SWELT as an alternative to IELTS for entry to degree and postgraduate programmes.
