Oxford Brookes University has partnered with Password English Language testing in order to provide a recognised English language test for international applicants.
If you are an international student and hold a conditional offer to study at Oxford Brookes and need to provide evidence of your English language skills, the Password test is an ideal solution to help you meet the English language requirements of your offer.
Thanks to our invigilation partners, ProctorU, you can sit the test online from the comfort of your own home. We offer tests throughout the year and on this page, you will find everything you need to know about booking a test. Please note a small charge of £30.00 is required in order to sit the test and which is payable directly to ProctorU.
In order to be eligible to sit this test, you must be an international student who holds an offer to study at Oxford Brookes University. You need to have accepted your offer to study at Brookes in order to be eligible for the test. You will only be eligible to take this test if you are required to meet the University’s English Language requirements as a condition of your offer, and you do not have sufficient alternative evidence to provide.
Please note that the test dates below are currently only available to Conditional Firm applicants who are required to meet the University's English Language requirements for the September 2022 intake.
We will be offering the following test dates for our September 2022 intake:
You will also receive via email instructions to take a ‘Password Familiarisation Test’ in advance of the main test. This will help you to prepare for the test and become familiar with the process.
ProctorU recommends that you visit this link after creating an account to test out equipment prior to the exam.
You can simply click on the “Test My Equipment” button located at the top of the screen. Please make sure that you are using the latest version of your browser and have downloaded the ProctorU extension available here for Chrome and here for Firefox.
Test results will usually be available within 5 working days and the Oxford Brookes password Team will contact you via email to inform you of your overall score (IELTS equivalent) and individual scores in each of the four components.
If you are successful in meeting the English Language requirements of your offer, the Admissions team will then guide you through to the next stage of your application journey.
