What is IELTS?

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.


IELTS is jointly managed by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), British Council and IDP: IELTS Australia. IELTS conforms to the highest international standards of language assessment and covers the four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking.


IELTS is recognised by universities and employers in many countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the USA. It is also recognised by professional bodies, immigration authorities and other government agencies. Please refer to a full list of recognised organisations on the IELTS website www.ielts.org IELTS is available in two modules – Academic and General Training.

IELTS Modules

The Academic Module assesses whether a candidate is ready to study or train in the medium of English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Admission to undergraduate or postgraduate courses should be based on the results of this module.

The General Training Module emphasises basic survival skills in a broad social and educational context. General Training is suitable for candidates who are going to English-speaking countries to complete their secondary education, to undertake work experience or training programmes not at degree level or for immigration purposes for Australia, Canada and New Zealand. The General Training Module is not offered on all test dates so ensure you check the next available date for this module.

The IELTS test is offered as a pen and paper test. Computer-Based IELTS tests are not available in the UK.
