Why Choose IELTS ?
IELTS – the International English Language Testing System – is the world’s most popular English language test. It is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment and evaluates all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Study, work and live abroad
IELTS is accepted by more than 10,000 organisations in over 140 countries. Those organisations include governments, academic institutions, and employers with 3,000 in the USA alone.

In most countries where English is the main language, you’ll need evidence of English language skills to apply for jobs and university courses.
Prove yourself at home
Proving your English language skills with an IELTS test can help you get a better job or a promotion in your home country.
