CEFR C2 is not a set requirement for any UK visa type. Candidates with this level of English language competency who choose to sit the C2 exam satisfy all visa requirements that entail the four skills: Listening, Reading, Writing & Speaking.
After the exam, candidates receive a Test Report displaying their score and unique reference number (URN). The URN must be included in the visa application.
Visa requirement information is subject to change. Applicants should refer to UK Government guidance on English language exams for visas and are responsible for ensuring they take the correct exam.
*Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), developed by the Council of Europe, is widely used to describe levels of language proficiency.
