IELTS - The International English Language Testing System
We constantly prepare students for the Cambridge IELTS. There is an IELTS Options available almost all year round at TIS and you can join this option as part of the General English Options Course at almost any time. IELTS is accepted by almost all British, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand colleges and universities. It is also increasingly recognised in North American academic institutions as well as many professional organisations such as the UK General Medical Council and the UK Ministry of Defence. Exams are held locally every month - please see the table to the right for dates and locations.
Grades are banded on a scale of 1-9 and the majority of universities are looking for at least 6/7 for entry to a degree programme. Foundation courses require a lower grade of at least 4.5. Enrolment should be made on the General English Plus Options - IELTS. IELTS is recommended for long stay students intending to go on to further and higher education in English speaking countries.
IELTS Test Fee – approximately £135 for 2012.
