IELTS is accepted by more than 10,000 organisations in over 145 countries. The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular high stakes English-language test for study, work and migration, with more than 3 million tests taken last year.
IELTS assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking — and is designed to reflect real life use of English — at study, at work, and at play. The IELTS test is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment. It has an excellent international reputation, and is accepted by over 10,000 organisations worldwide, including schools, universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies.
IDP Education, co-owner and official test centre of IELTS
We are a proud co-owner of IELTS and IDP Education offers the IELTS test in more than 200 test locations in 50 countries. The IELTS test is co-owned and was co-created by IDP:IELTS Australia, the British Council and Cambridge English Language Assessment.
IELTS Academic or General Training - which test do you need?
IELTS offers two types of test – IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training.
The IELTS test you take – and the score you need – will depend on both the requirements of your visa and of the organisation where you plan to study or work.
When to take IELTS Academic?
IELTS Academic is designed for people planning to study in higher education or those seeking professional registration. It assesses whether you are ready to begin studying or training in an environment where English is the language used.
You may take IELTS Academic if you want to:
• Study or train at a university or college as an undergraduate.
• Study or train at a university or college as a postgraduate.
• Join a professional association.
• Gain registration in a professional organisation (e.g. medical, nursing, accounting, engineering).
