We chose to work with Linguaskill because it is a test based on international standards, and therefore transparent and internationally recognizable.
We appreciate the ease of administration, as well as the possibility to use an external test with automated results, as they are impartial and not subject to debate.
The Business English modules’ content is extremely valuable for our hospitality and business management students.
Andrew Keohane, Senior Learning Support Manager
We have been working with Swiss Exams in Winterthur for many years. Our students take Cambridge English exams at levels B1 to C1, and the simple administrative processes make our work much easier. From exam registration to the prompt announcement of results everything runs flawlessly. The Swiss Exams team works absolutely reliably, is customer-oriented and, if necessary, flexible. We particularly appreciate the innovative strength of Swiss Exams, the continuous personal support and the transparent communication.
