Since 1989, IELTS has been proven and trusted worldwide to provide a secure, global, authentic, and customer-focused test that measures a true-to-life ability to communicate in English. Over 9,000 educational institutions, government agencies, and professional organizations across 135 countries recognize IELTS scores as a trusted and valid indicator of communication skills in English.
IELTS is designed to assess the language competence of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication. In Canada, IELTS is used as a measure of English language proficiency for immigration, skilled worker applications, university entrance requirements, masters programs, and other professional designations. With over 2.2 million tests taken last year, IELTS is the world's most popular English proficiency test for higher education and global migration, and sets the standard for integrity, research, and innovation.
IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment.
