The American University of Bahrain (AUBH), an official Cambridge Assessment Center for English language testing, has opened English language proficiency testing online, to the Kingdom. The announcement came as a response to the widespread cancellation of English proficiency tests. The testing will take place on Proctor-U, the University’s online AI-enabled, proctoring platform. Proctor-U, solely adopted by AUBH in the Kingdom, protects the integrity and credibility of high-stakes exams.

Dr. Mark D. Shermis, AUBH Provost, commented: “Amidst the widespread cancellation of international English proficiency tests, students, employers and institutions in Bahrain still urgently need these assessments. Being a recognized Linguaskill testing center, it was important for us to bridge our capabilities with the technology we have in place: ProctorU. This solution will ensure the continuation of English language asssessment while ensuring the integrity of results.”

Drawing on over 100 years of research, Cambridge Assessment exams are trusted as secure English tests by governments worldwide. Linguaskill results are aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), the international standard for describing language ability. Cambridge qualifications are internationally accepted as the highest quality mark in English language assessment.

AUBH offers programs in Colleges of Business and Management, Engineering, and Architecture and Design. AUBH’s purpose-built campus in Riffa is a second home to a new calibre of student, nurtured and mentored by hand-picked faculty with the best international and local expertise. As the first American-style University in Bahrain, AUBH takes a unique approach to learning, going beyond imparting knowledge to giving students access to real world scenarios and practical case-based learning. Complete with the latest in learning technology, Library, labs, and a Sports Center, the Campus is alive with the buzz of academic and extra-curricular life, amongst a multi-cultural student body.
