The UK has longstanding experience in producing and administering exams, not only English language exams, but also examinations in the fields of accountancy, law, economics and trade.
The exam boards specialise in the development and administration for these subjects and focus on the specific needs of candidates, institutions and companies. All the exams are internationally recognised.
Below you can find a list of UK exam boards operating in Italy. All boards are recognised by the non-ministerial Government Department OFQUAL (Office for Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) that regulates qualifications, exams and tests in England and vocational qualifications in Northern Ireland.

Please note that in Italy there are other exam boards whose certificates are recognised if they comply with European and national legislation.
