What is IELTS? The International English Language Testing System – or IELTS – is the world’s most popular English language test. It is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment and evaluates all your English skills — reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

If you want to study abroad, IELTS is a great choice because the test reflects how you’ll use English to study, work and live in an English-speaking environment. You can take the test at any of our official test centres around the world.
