What is BULATS?

BULATS is a service for companies which is designed to help them find out the level of language skills among their staff, trainees or job applicants. It assesses language skills which are needed for the workplace and for students and employees on language courses or on professional/business courses where foreign language ability is an important element of the course. There are three tests: reading and listening, speaking, and writing.

Since December 2016, the test is available online in English only.
