Graphic of IELTS acceptance in 1,600+ locations worldwide

IELTS – the International English Language Testing System – is the world’s most popular English language test. It is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment and evaluates all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking.

The test reflects how you’ll use English to study, work and live in an English speaking environment.

Study, work and live abroad 

IELTS is accepted by more than 11,000 organisations in over 140 countries. Those organisations include governments, academic institutions and employers with 3,400 in the USA alone. 

Get where you want to go

In most countries where English is the main language, you’ll need evidence of English language skills to apply for jobs and university courses. You can get that evidence with an IELTS exam from The British Council.
