A quick online test might speed up the admissions process, but it won’t tell you if a student can engage in seminars, communicate with their peers and keep up with written assignments.
IELTS is designed to give you a full and detailed picture of students' academic English ability. Not just a snapshot. It includes face-to-face conversations and authentic academic content, which means you can be sure your students are fully prepared for the demands of university.
Backed by 30 years of research and development, we use both the latest technology and expert examiners to mark tests – so if we say a student is proficient, you can take our word for it.
What’s more, our tests are done in-person, with trained staff on hand to identify imposters, detect fraudulent behaviour and prevent cheating.
