IELTS (International English Language Testing System) has been testing English language for more than 30 years. Today, IELTS is available at more than 1,100 test centres globally and over 3 million tests were taken in more than 140 countries in 2017.

Just like you, people choose IELTS to support their study, migration, and professional ambitions. They know IELTS is accepted at more than 10,000 organisations globally and is the most respected test of English in the world.
