What is DELA?

  • DELA is a diagnostic tool that assesses your strengths and weaknesses in academic reading, writing and listening over 2 hours.
  • Why you should sit DELA?
  • Doing well at university requires excellent academic language skills – a ‘step up’ from what you have been used to at secondary school. This is why the University of Melbourne is asking many students to take the Diagnostic English Language Assessment (DELA) when they commence an undergraduate degree.
