What happens on the course

Your tutor will:

  • give you a full understanding of the GESE 5 (British citizenship) and the GESE 3 (further leave to remain) exam requirements and prepare you for the exam
  • guide you through the process of finding an exam centre and booking your exam.

If you are applying for British citizenship, you need to take a test about life in the UK. This is not a Trinity test. Find out more about the life in the UK test.
