This six week long online course is recommended for anyone thinking about taking the IELTS test, but all English language learners will benefit from the tips and advice given in the course. 

The course focuses on the IELTS test (International English Language Testing System). IELTS is the world’s most popular English language test for higher education and global migration. IELTS is accepted by over 9,000 organisations worldwide including universities, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies. Over 2.2 million IELTS tests were taken globally last year.

This course takes you through each stage of the IELTS test — reading, writing, speaking and listening. At each stage there is advice from our video tutor and a team of experienced IELTS educators. You will also be asked to share your experiences, tips and opinions with other learners.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • be familiar with all parts of the IELTS test
  • have some useful tips to help you achieve your IELTS goals
  • understand how the IELTS test is assessed
  • have an opportunity to have your written and spoken English assessed by other learners.

The British Council has over 80 years’ experience in English language teaching and assessment and delivers IELTS tests in more than 100 countries. The course is extremely comprehensive and flexible at the same time. It will take up to two hours of your time per week, so you can practice at any time that suits you.
