IELTS is the world’s most popular English language test for education and emigration and is recognised by over 7,000 organisations worldwide, including educational institutions, employers, governments, immigration authorities and professional bodies.

You can choose from two tests: Academic or General Training. The type of test you choose will be dependent on whether you plan to study, work or live abroad. Both tests assess all of your English skills including reading; writing, listening and speaking. You will receive separate scores for each of these skills, as well as an overall score.

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.
