Who is IELTS for?
IELTS is the high-stakes English test for study, migration or work and can be the right test for you.
IELTS for study
Are you planning on studying in an English speaking country? An IELTS certificate is recognised as evidence of proficiency in English by more than 10,000 education and training providers worldwide. Some universities in non-English speaking countries require an IELTS score, where courses are taught in English.
Which test is right for me?
Most people will take the IELTS Academic test to support their study and application to study overseas - but it is important to check the entry requirements of individual organisations before choosing your test.
Students can nominate up to five organisations to which their IELTS test results will be sent automatically and free of charge. There is a fee for sending results to additional organisations. You can request to have us send your results as long as your IELTS scores are valid.
IELTS for migration
Do you want to migrate to an English speaking country? IELTS is accepted as evidence of English language proﬁciency for study, work and migration in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK, as well as for study and work in the USA.
Each country sets its own IELTS requirements. For up-to-date information, please visit the relevant government websites.
IELTS for work
Looking for work abroad? Organisations around the world rely on IELTS to help them select the right people.
In most countries where English is the main language of communication, evidence of acceptable English language skills is a prerequisite for applicants and international graduates seeking professional registration. Required proficiency levels vary between organizations, professions, by country and by jurisdiction. It is up to individual professional registration bodies to determine the IELTS band score and version of the test (Academic or General Training) they require.
