IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is the world’s most popular English language test. Last year, over 2.5 million IELTS tests were taken globally. 

Taking IELTS opens doors – it can help you live, study and work around the world. More than 9,000 organisations worldwide accept IELTS, including government bodies, employers and academic institutions. IELTS is also accepted by 3,300 institutions in the USA. In fact, IELTS is the only English language test accepted for immigration purposes by all countries that require one.

If you are applying for a visa to move to or remain in the UK, there’s an IELTS test for you. You can find more information in our IELTS for UK Visas and Immigration section.
