Additional Information on the IELTS Exam

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language proficiency exam for higher education and global migration. IELTS assesses all of your English skills—reading, writing, listening and speaking—and is designed to reflect how you will use English while studying or working abroad. IELTS has an excellent international reputation and is accepted by thousands of universities, businesses, immigration authorities and professional bodies worldwide.

IELTS was developed by language testing specialists to include a one-on-one speaking element to assess communication skills. This means that students are assessed by having a real-life conversation with a real person, in order to create a natural and effective gauge of the applicant’s English conversation skills.
