What Is the UELA?

Student at Newcastle UniversityThe UELA forms part of the language support and advisory service we provide for all our non-native speaker students. It helps us to:

  • see if you have any weaknesses in English language skills and provide advice about classes
  • ensure that English support is given to students from the beginning of the semester
  • advise students who wish to attend free classes on the most appropriate level of study

The UELA consists of a:

  • listening assessment (four parts, 45 minutes)
  • writing assessment (one question, 40 minutes).

It is administered and marked by INTO Newcastle University.
