IELTS for Study

Take IELTS to make your dreams come true.

There are two versions of IELTS: IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training.


IELTS Academic 

The IELTS Academic test is suitable for entry to study at undergraduate or postgraduate levels.

The IELTS Academic test is designed to assess whether you are ready to begin studying or training in an environment where English language is used and reflects features of language used in academic study.

The content of the test is relevant for all test takers, irrespective of your subject focus.

Learn more about the IELTS Academic test format here.


IELTS General Training

The IELTS General Training test usually required for vocational training, for example, in the construction, hospitality and leisure, and tourism industries.

The IELTS General Training test measures English language proficiency in a practical, everyday context. The tasks and texts reflect both workplace and social situations.

Choose the right test

Most people take the IELTS Academic test to support their study and application to study overseas – but it is important to check the entry  requirements of individual organisations before choosing your test.


Share your test results

Students can nominate up to five institutions to which their IELTS test results are sent automatically and free of charge. There is a fee for sending results to additional organisations. You can request your centre to send your results as long as your IELTS scores are valid.



I like that they are open to give us some information and kind of training course without any cost so we can get ready for this important test.

Instructions before the IELTS written and speaking test were very clear and the people were nice and helpful. I found the written test pretty good. It was not too difficult, nor too simple. The results came quickly and I was accepted in the program and I am currently in the middle of my first year exams.

IELTS has been growing steadily for 20 years because it works. It’s good to know that IELTS has been the choice of millions of people over the years. IELTS stood out immediately because it tests all four skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening, giving a well-rounded assessment of my English
