IELTS The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s leading test of English for higher education, immigration and employment. It checks your English proficiency- reading, writing, listening and speaking. The IELTS test is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment. It has an excellent international reputation, and is accepted by over 7,000 organizations worldwide, including schools, universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies.

Uniquely IELTS tests your English conversation skills through a face-to-face Speaking test which means that you are assessed by having a conversation with a real person. This is the most effective and natural way of testing your English conversation skills.

There are various versions of IELTS to choose from:

  • IELTS Academic:

This test is for students who wish to study abroad at undergraduate or postgraduate levels in Australia, UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and many other countries. IELTS Academic is the world’s most popular English language test for higher education.

  • IELTS General Training:

IELTS General Training is for individuals or professionals who wish to immigrate to the Canada, Australia, UK and other English speaking countries.

  • IELTS for UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI)

‘IELTS for UKVI’ is a UK government approved Secure English Language Test (SELT). This means that IELTS can be used to prove your English language abilities in support of a UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) application.

The following IELTS tests are on this list and have been approved for UK Visas and Immigration purposes:

IELTS (Academic or General Training)

If you’re applying for Tier 1 and Tier 2 visas to the UK, this is the test for you. IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training for UKVI are designed to meet certain administrative requirements that are specified by the UK Home Office. The actual test taken is the same as IELTS (for all other purposes), same content, examiners, format, level of difficulty, scoring and so on. The difference is in the customer journey on the test day. Test Report Forms will be slightly different, to show that you have taken the test at an IELTS UK visa session.

IELTS Life Skills

If you’re applying for a ‘family of a settled person’ visa, for indefinite leave to remain or citizenship, IELTS Life Skills is the test for you.  IELTS Life Skills is a new test, approved by UKVI as a Secure English Language Test (SELT).

It’s for people who need to show they have speaking and listening skills at Level A1 or B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
