An introduction to BULATS

Watch now

From January 2017 all BULATS tests will be carried out online, and the paper-based version will be withdrawn. From the same date, Cambridge English Language Assessment will no longer offer the French, Spanish or German versions of BULATS. Alliance Française, Goethe Institut and Universidad de Salamanca are currently reviewing the future of these versions of BULATS and will be making further announcements in due course. We are giving extensive notice of these changes so that you won't be affected if you have already started a preparation course.
