Online English Test


Complete your English language test with us

Enrollment into Capital College programs require students to demonstrate their English skills.

Each program may have different English requirements. Take a look at the program description to identify the minimum level of English skills you need.

You have several options:

Send the College a copy of your completed IELTS certificate or a similar English test. If you have studied at a high school or a college that delivers approved programs in English, that should be OK for enrolling into your Capital program; but please contact us to confirm and we likely need evidence.

For many students the best option may be to do our online English test . You can do the test while overseas, at home or at work. You can do the same test on our campus if you choose. It is quick and effective.

See information below to complete our online English test.

Capital College uses TrackTest for online English Language testing. You can do the test while overseas, at home or at work. You can do the same tests on our campus if you want to visit us. We would love to meet you.
