What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS), is recognised by more than 10,000 organisations, so when you take the test you can be confident that it is recognised by educational institutions, employers, governments and professional bodies around the world.  IELTS is the most recognised English language testing today.  Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK use IELTS to process immigration applications.

How does it work?

Customers are tested on the following:

Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. There are two tests available – IELTS Academic or IELTS General training. The test you choose is based on what it is you want to do.

IELTS Academic – measures your level of the English language and suitable for an academic environment.  It reflects academic language and tests whether your ready to begin training or studying.

IELTS General Training – measures your English language proficiency in everyday context.  The tasks and tests are based on the workplace and social situations.

If you are taking the IELTS test to support a visa application to work, live or study, you may need to take the IELTS for Visa and Immigration Academic or General Training or the IELTS for Life Skills test.
