Language documentation requirement for UK visa

For all applications involving paths which include a track in the UK: Note that in order to apply for a UK visa, you will need to provide the certificate of successful completion of a Secure English Language Test (SELT - see a list       of tests approved by UK Visa & Immigration). If you require a visa to study in the UK, but do not have the required test result yet, you can still apply for a path that includes a UK university. But note that full enrolment in this programme will only be possible once you have provided a SELT test result.
