The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration.
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.
IELTS is the world’s most popular, accepted and trusted English Language Testing system:
The Academic module assesses a test taker’s readiness to study or train in the medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level by testing the full range of formal language skills required for academic purposes. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programs and courses is based on the results of the Academic module. The Academic module is also suitable for professional purposes to provide a level of English proficiency to future employers.
The General module is for test takers who are going to English speaking countries to complete their secondary education, undertake work experience, training programs, or to qualify for immigration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the United States.
British Council is a proud co-owner of IELTS.
