I am married to a british citizen and I am applying under set m soon. I have lived here for nearly 5 yrs now. Does this mean that if and when my ILR set m gets approved, I can apply for naturalization? Thanks.You need to have lived in UK for 3 years to apply for naturalisation if married to or in CP with British citizen. In this case you can apply as soon as you get your ILR and have lived 3 years.
If you aren't so married or in CP, residence period lengthens to 5 years and in addition you need to have been on ILR for a year.
That's what I thought. Any idea if my college diploma showing that I graduated BA mass communications degree in the philippines may be accredited by UKNARIC and be used as my qualification? Instead og taking ESOL? Thanks again.Yes, if either application is made on or after 28th October, you need English language test pass at B1 (intermediate) or better.
That might be a bit tricky as I graduated 2002. Quite awhile back now. Is that the only option I got here Joppa. Do you think I should consult UKNARIC at all? And if they do certify it, can I use this instead of ESOL?It isn't clear if the degree was taught entirely in English or not. You should get a written confirmation from the university and attach to your application form.
Yes it was a mixture of tagalog and english. I dont think itl be difficult to take the test. Just exploring options...especially when I know I have a diploma that may be accepted after all. Thanks again Joppa.NARIC only assesses equivalency. It doesn't tell you whether your degree was taught in English. Was it, or was it a mixture of Tagalog and English?
Surely it isn't difficult or expensive to take and pass a test at B1? I did online practice and got C2!
Yep, I think you are right. Do I have to be enrolled in a course or just take the exam? Sorry Joppa.I think your degree won't be accepted as it was taught in both languages. The rule states it must be taught entirely in English, like degree courses in UK.
Getting a B1 pass is probably easier and cheaper option.
