IDP Education co-founded and co-owns IELTS (International English Language Testing System) in association with Cambridge English Language Assessment and the British Council.
Since its launch in 1989, IELTS has been an innovator in English language testing and was the first to measure the ability to communicate in all four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.
Today, IELTS is available to test takers in 800+ locations across 130 countries, with over 40 testing locations in Canada alone.
Every aspect of the IELTS, from test design and administration, to the marking and reporting of results, is subject to the highest quality controls, security procedures and integrity management practices.
This rigour has ensured that IELTS remains trusted and recognized by immigration authorities and government departments in almost all English-speaking countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. More than 9,000 organizations worldwide - including higher education institutions, government agencies, professional associations and employers - recognize and accept IELTS scores.
