In the competitive global workplace, being able to communicate in international business situations is a key skill for any graduate seeking to enter the world of work.
There are a variety of official tests which are accepted as proof of English language competency. For academic and immigration purposes IELTS, OET, Pearson and Cambridge results are commonly accepted results. However, for employers, the Cambridge Business Language Testing Service (BULATS) provides a more meaningful assessment of a candidate’s workplace language skills.
BULATS is an international test available in English, French, German and Spanish that assesses business language application and competencies.
Employers around the world use BULATS results to help them assess the language ability of job applicants quickly and accurately and identify candidates with the right language skills for advertised positions.
BULATS results are accompanied by a ‘Summary of Typical Candidate Abilities’, which highlights the business language competencies that candidates at each level can be expected to demonstrate. For example:
BULATS ability summaries provide employers with real-world applications of your language skills in Reading & Listening, Speaking and Writing, helping them to match your skills to position descriptions and key selection criteria.
Navitas Professional is the only Professional Year provider offering free BULATS testing as part of the Professional Year program.
