The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English proficiency test. More than 9,000 organisations around the world accept IELTS, including Government, academic and employment institutions. In fact, IELTS is the only English language test accepted for immigration purposes by all countries that require one.
IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment and conducts tests in more than 900 test centres and locations in over 130 countries.
The IELTS tests the language ability of candidates who want to study or work in countries where English is the primary language of communication.
