FCE now accepted by Immigration New Zealand

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

Immigration New Zealand  are now accepting Cambridge FCE (First Certificate of English) for visa applications where students must demonstrate their English language level. Prior to this IELTS was the only English test accepted by Immigration New Zealand. However since November, applicants can also apply for visas with an FCE score of 176 or higher.

Advantages of Cambridge FCE Certificates

This is great news for students who already have the First Certificate of English. Unlike some examinations, the Cambridge certificate courses have lifetime validity. In addition to being useful for visa applications, some UK universities accept Cambridge ESOL qualifications as proof of English language level.

LSI Auckland offers preparation courses for students who want to sit the First Certificate of English. The courses run for  8, 10 or 12 weeks and start in January, March, June or October.
