International Englisch Language Testing System (IELTS)

 “IELTS” stands for “International English Language Testing System” and is an internationally recognized language exam of the highest quality. The IELTS test determines the English-language level of those people who want to study or work in an English-speaking country. The test is organized by three partners: the British Council, Cambridge ESOL, and IDP:IELTS Australia.

The test consists of 4 parts. Generally, all 4 parts are tested on the same day. The oral part (interview) sometimes takes place on another day (e.g. Friday).

In most cases, universities demand proof of your language abilities before you can register with them. Over 6,000 educational establishments, state institutions and organizations in 135 countries recognize IELTS certificates as a binding proof of English-language abilities – over 3,000 alone in the U.S. In the United Kingdom, IELTS is recognized by all universities and colleges. With that, IELTS is one of the most recognized English tests in the world. Here you can find a list of all institutions that recognize IELTS.
