What is IELTS?

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular high-stakes English language proficiency test to help you study, work, or migrate to a country where English is the native language. IELTS is unbiased and fair to all test takers. It provides a valid, reliable, and accurate assessment of the four language skills: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. An easy-to-use 9-band scale clearly identifies proficiency levels.

Millions of IELTS tests are taken every year, in over 140 countries, and more than 11,000 organisations, including educational institutions, employers, governments, and professional bodies, accept the test as proof of English language proficiency.
