All IELTS research activities are co-ordinated as part of a
comprehensive and coherent framework for research and validation of
the test. A major component of this framework is the IELTS Joint-funded Research
which is sponsored jointly by IELTS Australia
and British Council with support from Cambridge English Language
The Caroline Clapham IELTS Masters
is awarded annually for the Master’s-level
dissertation or thesis in English which makes the most significant
contribution to the field of language testing.
The IELTS Partners can offer support for students and external
researchers who are engaging in IELTS-related research projects
e.g. access to materials and /or test data, where appropriate.
Any enquiries about this type of assistance should be addressed
to one of the partner organisations. Each request will be
considered individually and take into account confidentiality,
security and the amount of resources needed.
