What is IELTSTM?


The International English Language Testing System, or IELTSTM, as it is popularly called, is an English Language proficiency test that is required to be taken by non-native students so as to study in countries where the medium of instruction is English. IELTSTM is accepted by Universities in UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. It has become a mandatory test for study in Australia. One cannot be granted an Australian Student Visa without an IELTSTM Score. All other study destinations require one to appear for either the TOEFL or the IELTSTM.
