The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) assesses the English language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is used as the language of communication. 

IELTS tests all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking. The IELTS Speaking test is a face-to-face interview with a certified Examiner. It is interactive and as close to a real-life situation as a test can get.

You can take an IELTS exam in Exeter or Plymouth at least once a month (Cost = £190) or you can take an UKVI IELTS exam in the UK, 10 centres to choose from, Cardiff being the closest centre to Exeter at least twice a month (Cost = £210)

Our highly experienced teachers use a combination of IELTS coursebooks and IELTS specific resources to build our students' knowledge of the exam, along with their language skills. Each week consists of 6 hours of study, giving our students the opportunity to focus on their Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing every week. From our experience of preparing students for their IELTS exam, we recognise that it can take time to build up the exam technique and confidence required to achieve their goals, so we therefore recommend enrolling for at least 4 weeks on our IELTS course. Many students choose to continue for longer than four weeks, however, to continue strengthening their four skills, or to undertake practice exams.
