IELTS for education
Thousands of universities, colleges, and academic institutions rely on IELTS to deliver language tests they can trust. For more than 30 years we have set the standard for testing, helping to deliver better education outcomes for both students and institutions.
Language testing you can trust
IELTS tests are accepted by more than 11500 institutions around the world who trust us to evaluate whether academic candidates are ready to study in an English-language environment.
IELTS offers two main tests, IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training, giving you the flexibility to adopt the test that suits your needs.
The IELTS scale
Educational institutions use the IELTS scale to set entry scores for their courses. Covering four sections – Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking – it provides an accurate overview of candidates' fluency.
IELTS Results Service
Organisations that accept IELTS are given access to the IELTS Results Service. This is secure, free, and simple to use; it helps to ensure the accuracy and validity of your candidates’ applications.
No other English language test is accepted by more institutions.
