Skip Navigation Links Home IELTS About IELTS


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 four areas of your English skills - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.

It is designed to reflect how you will use English for studying, at work, in everyday situations or in your new life overseas.

IELTS uses a one-on-one speaking test to assess your English communication skills. This means that you are assessed by having a real-life conversation with an actual person - the most effective and natural way of testing your English conversation skills.

You can choose either the IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training - depending on your future plans and needs.

Whatever your reason for taking IELTS, this is your opportunity to make the most of your language skills.
