BULATS Exam Preparation

Our four schools are official agents and test centres for students who wish to take the BULATS (Business Language Testing Service) exam. The BULATS exam is an online test involving reading, use of English, and listening, and is a very useful certificate for students who wish to extend their visa and need to show proof of having taken an exam.
