IELTSIn cooperation with British Council

IELTS assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking, and is designed to reflect how you will use English at study, at work, and at play, in your new life abroad.

There are two versions of the IELTS test:

  • IELTS Academic
  • IELTS General Training

To check which version of the test you need, please read IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training. Both modules cover all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

More about IELTS

The test is developed by some of the world's leading experts in language assessment. It has an excellent international reputation, and is accepted by over 9,000 organisations worldwide, including schools, universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies.

IELTS is the most widely accepted English language test that uses a one-on-one speaking test to assess your English communication skills. This means that you are assessed by having a real-life conversation with a real person, making it the most effective and natural way of testing your English conversation skills.

IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment through more than 900 test centres and locations in over 130 countries.
