French - common language proficiency test(s) - grad schools (esp. in the UK & US)

Does anyone know what the most common French language proficiency tests are? Specifically, I am interested in what is used in universities in the UK and the US to test incoming or first-year graduate students. Obviously, they may not use a standard test at all but may simply use one their individual university has devised. I'm really not sure, but I think that they probably do use a standard test (for example, for English I know TOEFL is standard in the UK).

Yes, this is sort of like the last post, but much more specific. I have tried googling, but no luck. This seems like something people here may know off the top of their heads, so I figure it can't hurt to ask.

many thanks!
