IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System.

The globally recognised English language proficiency test is divided into two categories: IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training.

If you are applying for higher education or professional registration in an English speaking environment, you can take the IELTS Academic Test. It reflects some of the features of academic language and assesses whether you are ready to begin studying or training in a foreign country.

The IELTS General Training test is for those who are going to English speaking countries for secondary education, work experience or training programs. It is also a requirement for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. The test focuses on basic survival skills in broad social and workplace contexts.

Millions of students choose to appear for IELTS because its scores are recognised by over 10,000 reputed universities and government organisations in at least 140 countries around the world.

Non-native students need to take English proficiency tests to study in countries where the medium of instruction is English.

Jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English. IELTS provides the best standard of international English testing. The exam aims to test your English reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.
