Why accept IELTS?
IELTS is the world's most popular test for verifying English language ability. If you work in an English-speaking country or use English with international colleagues, IELTS sets you and your team up for success.
Testing you can trust
IELTS has a well-earned reputation for fairness, reliability, and exacting standards. We go to great lengths to ensure that we provide results that you can trust.
IELTS makes it easy for you to assess whether a candidate’s English-language skills are sufficient for entry into your organisation. Results are given as an overall score on the IELTS scale, and broken down for each test section (Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking).
IELTS tests are based on decades of rigorous academic research.
