PTE Academic was created in response to demand for a more accurate, objective, secure and relevant test of English.

Launched in 2009, PTE Academic has been rapidly adopted in the UK, Australia, USA and Canada. We are accepted by thousands of academic programs, including prestigious institutions such as Harvard Business School, Yale and INSEAD.


PTE Academic was created after years of research by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment. Our advisory group includes language assessment experts who have helped to rethink the way we assess English: they created the Global Scale of English, which builds upon the Common European Framework and helps to show greater levels of progression for English learners.

Assessment is not the same as judgment. We believe PTE Academic is the most objective test of academic English in the world. It doesn’t matter where your students come from or what they look like, PTE Academic only tests their English skills. You can therefore be sure that all PTE Academic test takers have been treated with complete fairness, and that you are not missing out on students because of unreliable test scores.


PTE Academic assesses English language skills in more ways than any other test. This means that your students will be more likely to cope well with the wide variety of tasks expected of them at your institution. PTE Academic students are required to prove their ability to effectively communicate in English, not their ability to memorize.
