IDP Education co-founded and co-owns IELTS (International English Language Testing System) in association with Cambridge English Language Assessment and the British Council. IELTS is the world’s most popular, high stakes English language proficiency test.
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
IELTS is available to test takers in more than 800 locations in more than 130 countries.
Every aspect of the IELTS test, 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 recognised 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 8,000 organisations worldwide - including higher education institutions, government agencies, professional associations and employers - recognise and accept IELTS scores.
