Unlock the world with IELTS
IELTS is the world’s most popular language test for emigration and studying abroad. Take IELTS with British Council to help you on your way to the UK, Canada, the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s leading English language proficiency test, with over 1.7 million tests taken last year.
IELTS assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking, and is designed to reflect how you will use English at study, at work, and at play, in your new life abroad.
