PLEASE READ THE IELTS TESTING POLICY BEFORE PROCEEDING (click on IELTS POLICY on right)
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a comprehensive test of English language proficiency designed to assess the ability of non-native speakers of English who intend to study or train in the medium of English. IELTS tests the complete range of English language skills that will commonly be encountered by students when studying or training in English-speaking settings.
All candidates take the same Listening and Speaking tests. There is an option of either Academic or General Training modules for Reading and Writing tests. The Academic module is suitable for candidates planning to study in an institution of higher learning. General Training is suitable for candidates planning to undertake non-academic training or for work or immigration purposes.
IELTS is accepted by most American, Australian, British, Canadian, and New Zealand academic institutions. It is also accepted by many professional organizations including the New Zealand Immigration Service, the Australian Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs, the Australian Medical Council, the UK General Medical Council, and the UK Ministry of Defense.
