The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an internationally accredited direct English language assessment for people who intend to study or work in an English-speaking institution.

Conducting 1.4 million tests globally, IELTS is the world’s most popular high-stakes English language test.

IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment.

Depending on whether you want to study, work or migrate you can choose from two types of IELTS tests: Academic or General , both tests are made up of four parts – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. IELTS results are graded on the unique IELTS 9-band scale.

The test covers the full range of ability from non-user to expert user. You are not limited in how many times you can sit the test. IELTS respects international diversity and is fair to anyone who sits the test, regardless of nationality.

UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) have a range of specific requirements for candidates wishing to use English language tests for UK visa applications. From December 1 2014 it is therefore essential that you let us know before you register that you are intending to use your IELTS result for UK visa purposes. We will then advise you of available test dates and the registration process.
