Use IELTS for your organisation

Why do organisations recognise IELTS?

Communicating in English is critical for success for people working, studying or moving to an English-speaking country. As an institution that recognises IELTS, you can efficiently assess your applicant's fluency and competency in English. IELTS helps you find the right people for your institution, profession or business. Learn how to become an organisation that accepts IELTS.

What organisations accept IELTS?

Any organisation that requires people to demonstrate a level of English language proficiency can use IELTS. Universities and the vocational sector in Australia rely on IELTS to ensure students have the English skills to succeed. The Australian Government trusts IELTS results for visas. Professional associations use IELTS for the recognition of qualified occupations.
