Course overview

Are you thinking of taking the ‘Life in the UK’ test or want to find out more about the ‘Life in the UK’ test, then this course is for you. The course will introduce you to many aspects of the UK in order to pass the UK Citizenship test. The course is a first step in teaching learners about what to be expected on the test and what they need to revise for when they plan to take the test later on. You will learn and discuss different laws, UK history, culture and social aspects of what is expected of typical UK citizens in everyday life. You will help each other to practice your English through informal activities and discussion to improve your understanding and confidence.

Course description

The course will cover important laws, historical events, and cultural and social behaviours of the UK. Most importantly we will look at many test questions and practice these both as a group and individually. Anyone applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK or British Citizenship must be prepared to take the ‘Life in the UK’ test. The test now required under the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 shows your knowledge of British life. You will find out about eligibility and the application process; understand what is required to pass the test; improve your knowledge of the UK; practice your English through informal activities and discussion and mock test questions to help improve your English and confidence. You will also need a minimum of Entry 3 English to participate in this course. If you have not already had a skills assessment to check your English level, we can arrange this and refer you to suitable preparation courses so that you can reach this level.
