The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.

IELTS is jointly managed by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), British Council and IDP:IELTS Australia. IELTS conforms to the highest international standards of language assessment. It covers the four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking.

IELTS is recognised by universities and employers in many countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK and USA. It is also recognised by professional bodies, immigration authorities and other government agencies.

NB This IELTS test centre is able to accept English language testing applications from UK Visas & Immigration applicants who have recently taken an English language test in the UK or Ireland with another SELT provider, and who are now required to submit other evidence of English language proficiency. Please email ielts@nottingham.ac.uk for further advice.
