Hi

Sorry to be a bit stupid , so does that basically mean no you cannot use the exemption used in ILR ??


This what confuses me, in the guidance notes for Citizenship it says you can whereas on the website it says that,

Thats why I want some clarification on it

Thanks in advance!!

Hi

Page 18 "Non-majority English-speaking countries If you have a degree that was taught or researched in a non-majority Englishspeaking country, you must provide: •your degree certificate •an Academic Qualification Level Statement (AQUAL) from UK NARIC confirming the qualification is equivalent to a UK qualification •an English language Proficiency Statement (ELPS) from UK NARIC, which will confirm that the degree was taught in English"


This is what is confusing me thanks could someone please clarify thanks

On page 18 it states:

Those who have obtained an academic qualification You will not be required to show a formal speaking and listening qualification if you have an academic qualification which is equivalent to a UK Bachelor’s or Master’s degree or PHD, which was taught in English. If you have a UK degree you must provide your degree certificate.

If you have the following from a non majority english speaking country:

"Non-majority English-speaking countries If you have a degree that was taught or researched in a non-majority Englishspeaking country, you must provide: •your degree certificate •an Academic Qualification Level Statement (AQUAL) from UK NARIC confirming the qualification is equivalent to a UK qualification •an English language Proficiency Statement (ELPS) from UK NARIC, which will confirm that the degree was taught in English"

then you will not have to provide a formal speaking and listening qualification.

Exemption from the knowledge of language and life in the UK requirement

If you are aged 65 or over or have a long term physical or mental condition that
prevents you from meeting the knowledge of language and life in the UK
requirement, you may be exempt. You may apply for exemption by indicating this on this application.

If you were exempted from the knowledge of language and life requirements when
you applied for settlement you must now meet the requirement before applying for naturalisation unless you are exempted on grounds of age or physical or mental impairment.
