IELTS – International English Language Testing System

IELTS is the International English Language Testing System, the world’s proven English language test.

English language skills:

English language skills are a requirement for receiving an Australian student visa. IELTS and OET(for only certain occupations) are the only test accepted by the Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) for visa purposes.

Entry requirements for student visa:

To be accepted to study on a student visa in Australia you will need to demonstrate a sufficient level of English language proficiency, and meet minimum academic requirements.Institutions set their own English language requirements for course entry, and the IELTS score needed for your course may be different to the score needed to secure your visa. You should check entry requirements with your institution.

IELTS was one of the pioneers of four skills English language testing over 17 years ago, and continues to set the standard for English language testing today.
