Diagnostic English language assessment (LELA) and Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for current students

This 45 minute assessment is part of the registration process for the In-sessional courses. The Lincoln English Language Assessment (LELA) is a short test that will help determine which In-sessional courses will be most helpful to you, and which level of course you should attend (intermediate, upper-intermediate or advanced). Students must register to take the LELA before attending in-sessional courses.
