When applying for student visas, it is essential to satisfy the minimum English language requirements. Unless you are exempt, you will need to prove that you meet this requirement by providing your results from one of the following English language tests: 

IELTS - International English Language Testing System
TOEFL iBT - Test of English as a Foreign Language internet-based test
CAE - Certificate in Advanced English (Cambridge English Advanced test)
