What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s leading English language proficiency test, with over 2 million tests taken last year for higher education, career and global migration purposes. It is accepted by 10,000 organizations worldwide, including schools, universities, immigration authorities, and professional bodies.

IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment.

IELTS has two different test types:

Academic: The IELTS Academic test is for people applying for higher education or professional registration in an English speaking environment. It reflects some of the features of academic language and assesses whether you are ready to begin studying or training. This approach is widely supported by the institutions that recognize IELTS.

General Training: 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.

Test Fee

The IELTS Test Fee is $309 (including GST/PST).
