Respected and accepted by more than 10,000 organisations in over 140 countries, find out which organisations accept IELTS scores.
Choosing IELTS gives you more options for the future. IELTS is accepted by more than 10,000 organisations in over 140 countries. This includes:
Universities, schools, training colleges and tertiary institutes
Government departments and agencies
Professional and industry bodies
Companies and employers.
Universities, colleges, employers and migration bodies each set their own IELTS score requirements, depending on the level of English they require for their purposes. That’s why the score you are asked to demonstrate for entry to high school is different from the score you are asked to demonstrate for professional registration.
If you plan to study in higher education or seek professional registration in an English-speaking country, you might need to take the IELTS Academic test.
If you plan to move abroad for work or migrate to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK or the USA, you might need to take an IELTS General Training test.
If you want to study or apply for professional registration in the UK, you might need to take the IELTS Academic for UKVI test.
