If you wish to study in Australia or in another English-speaking country, you will be asked to sit an Academic IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test. This test places students on a scale from one to nine according to their language ability in all four micro-skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing).


Most universities in Australia require an IELTS score of 6.0 or more, but it’s important for you to check the specific entry requirements for your intended course of study. The IELTS test is globally recognised by not only educational institutions, but also by governments and employers, so a good score is invaluable for your CV.


Tests are held regularly at the TAFE Queensland IELTS Test Centre once or twice a month. The Language Academy will help you apply for the test and will give you any information required about the test.
