IELTS Testing

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, is designed to measure the language ability of candidates who want to work or study where English is the language of communication. IELTS is jointly managed by the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations, the British Council, and IDP: IELTS Australia.

IELTS conforms to the highest international standards of language assessment, covering the four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. IELTS is recognized by universities and employers in many countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, and the USA. Many professional organizations, immigration authorities, and other governments also recognize IELTS testing.

The IELTS test has two forms—which one you take depends on your reasons for testing:

Academic Test/Module

  • For entry into undergraduate or postgraduate education courses
  • For professional reasons

General Training Test/Module

  • For enrollment into vocational or training courses in secondary schools
  • For immigration purposes
