Pearson Makes UK Visa Application Easier for Nigerians

UK Visa

By Ahmed Rahma

The application of the United Kingdom visa has been made easier for Nigerians following the launch of the PTE Secure English Language Test (SELT) by Pearson.

The world’s learning company launched this platform at a virtual event held in Nigeria on Wednesday, November 25, 2020.

The PTE SELT has the approval of the UK Home Office and is used for UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) purposes.

The SVP for English Assessment at Pearson, Ms Freya Thomas Monk, explained that “these tests offer a fast, fair and convenient choice for anyone who wishes to work, study or come to live in the UK.”

The tests are delivered through the Pearson VUE test centre networks, which have implemented proactive health and safety measures including but not limited to readily available hand sanitizer, increased sanitization in high touch areas, and disinfected testing workstations (completed between each test taker) to support the safety of testing candidates and staff. Face masks are required at all Pearson VUE-owned test centres.

According to Ms Monk, SELT will help many Nigerians broaden their horizons and apply for opportunities in the UK.

“The process is simple and brilliantly designed, interactive and most importantly a true reflection of one’s language ability. We look forward to growing on the continent,” she said.

She further said, “We continue to see high demand from test takers who want to book and deliver PTE as a Secure English Language Test, especially when it comes to applying for a UK Visa and Immigration purposes.”

This new location brings Pearson’s worldwide total of UKVI approved locations close to 150 and will help meet the demand of customers and give Nigerians more choice of test locations as they look to move to the UK to work, study or live.
