Welcome to IELTS, the International English Language Testing System.
Since 1989, IELTS has been proven and trusted worldwide to provide a secure, global, authentic, and customer-focused test that measures true-to-life ability to communicate in English. Over 10,000 educational institutions, government agencies, and professional organizations across 140 countries around the world recognize IELTS scores as a trusted and valid indicator of communication skills in English.
IELTS is designed to assess the language competence of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication. In Canada, IELTS is used as a measure of English language proficiency for immigration, skilled worker applications, university entrance requirements, master’s programs, and other professional designations. With over 3 million tests taken last year, IELTS is the world’s most popular English proficiency test for higher education and global migration and sets the standard for integrity, research and innovation.
IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia, and Cambridge English Language Assessment.
