The Language Institute of Thammasat University has launched TU-GET (Computer-based Test/CBT) to measure English language proficiency for general public as well as undergraduate and graduate students. Thammasat University is the first university in Thailand to offer English language proficiency test that covers all four main skills.

Associate Professor Dr. Supong Tangkiengsirisin, Director of the Language Institute, Thammasat University, said the Language Institute, Thammasat University, has launched TU-GET (Computer-based Test/CBT) since March 2019, allowing general public as well as undergraduate and graduate students to measure their proficiency in English language.

"We are the first university in Thailand to deliver computer-based English proficiency language test for four main skills including listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Scores that test-takers obtain from TU-GET (CBT) can be equated with TOEFL scores. TU-GET (CBT) is part of the Language Institute's objectives to be a leading institute that produces high-quality academic literature and English language professionals and supports research production," Associate Professor Dr. Supong said.

Associate Professor Dr. Supong added that the Language Institute has leveraged information technology (IT) to enhance efficiency of producing English language professionals and reduce paper consumption. This computer-based test will enable them to serve more test-takers each year. The Language Institute expects about 3,000 people will apply for TU-GET (CBT) test annually, up from 20,000 people undertaking paper-based TU-GET test each year. It is also expected that computer-based test will completely replace paper-based test within the next 3-5 years.
