IELTS stands for the International English Language Testing System. It is an internationally recognised language certificate that is accepted for entrance to universities around the world (IELTS Academic) and by immigration authorities in English speaking countries (IELTS General Training). As proof of your English level, it is also useful for employment and improving your career opportunities.


The test is taken by over one million students every year.



The IELTS examination covers four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking and can be taken either as a paper test or by computer. The student’s results are expressed as band scores from 0 to 9 (expert user).


Different institutions and authorities will require different minimum overall scores. They may also require minimum band scores in one or more of the skills. Entrance to the HND programmes at City University College requires an overall band score of 5.5
