IELTS IS THE HIGH-STAKES English test for study, migration and work.

It is a test designed for those who want to study or work in an English-speaking country. The certification is in fact recognized in:

  • United Kingdom
  • Ireland
  • United States
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Canada
  • South Africa

More than 10,000 organisations worldwide - universities, immigration and government offices, companies and employment centres - recognise IELTS as an English certification for their goals.

The certificate certifies the language level achieved by the test to be admitted to university courses or to obtain a visa for immigration in the country.

There are two types of certification: ACADEMIC and WORK. And, therefore, IELTS provides for two types of examinations: ACADEMIC and GENERAL TRAINIG. The first (Academic) is aimed at those who need to certify English for enrollment in international universities. The second (General Training) is aimed at those who need to comply with the bureaucratic tasks related to immigration or integration into the world of work.

Validity and Score

The validity of the IELTS certificate is two years. The score achieved by the student ranges from 1 (non-user) to 9 (experienced user). The grade from 1 to 9 is reached with the average of the grades obtained in the four different tests: listening, reading, writing, speaking.

The exam lasts 3 hours, including the four skills. Specifically: 2 hours and 45 minutes dedicated to listening, reading and writing; 15 minutes dedicated to speaking.

The IELTS certificate does not provide for rejection or promotion like the other Cambridge ESOL certificates.

It only provides for an evaluation and assignment of number that identifies the level of English.

The minimum score required for immigration reasons is 4.

A score between 6 and 7.5 is required for university enrolment, masters and doctorates.
