The Australian Department of Home Affairs has announced recently that effective from July 26, 2023, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) iBT will no longer be available for Australia visa applications.

While this development may raise concerns for those applicants who were considering the TOEFL iBT as their preferred English language test, fear not! There are still several alternative English language proficiency tests that remain available for Australian visa applications. These include:

  2. Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic: Another popular choice, PTE Academic evaluates your English language abilities through computer-based assessment.
  3. Occupational English Test (OET): Specifically designed for healthcare professionals, OET assesses language proficiency in a medical context.
