What is an assessment?

All applicants to KPU, regardless of country of origin or citizenship status, must be able to undertake studies in the English language.  Applicants may be required to produce evidence of competency to undertake studies in the English language.  An applicant may be required to take a test of facility in the English language before admission to a program.  Competence in the English language is required for listening, reading, speaking and writing.

Testing is required for entrance into a variety of programs at KPU.  The tests being used are not examinations; they are designed to help students determine their appropriate placement levels for admission to courses or programs that have specific pre-requisites.  If you do not meet the English Proficiency Admission Requirement, or the requirements for a program, you may be required to complete appropriate testing and/or upgrading.

If you require assistance in determining which test is most suitable for you, please book an appointment with the ACA Academic Advisor online at

Most courses offered are reading and writing intensive.  Applicants who cannot produce evidence of competency or who do not meet the standards set by a test of facility in the English language should inquire about Academic and Career Advancement Programs.

To book an assessment, please visit the Student Enrolment Services office on any KPU Campus.

PLEASE NOTE: All students are required to bring photo ID to their testing session.  Acceptable forms of photo ID include the following: BCID, Drivers Licence, Passport, KPU Student ID Card.
