We offer the International English Language Test System (IELTS) at our Preston campus. IELTS is the world’s most popular English language test, accepted for study, work and migration.

Established in 1989, IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment. IELTS is now a household name in many countries around the world.

IELTS is the most widely used test of English for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. More than 10,000 universities, schools, employers and immigration bodies, including all universities in Australia and the UK and many of the leading institutions in the USA, recognise it.

More than three million International English Language Testing System (IELTS) tests were taken in the past year, reflecting the growing importance of the world’s leading test of English for international higher education and migration.

It is not possible to gain a pass or fail result from an IELTS test. The IELTS score you need will be determined by the requirements of the visa, university, college, employer or immigration authority to which you are applying.
