IDP Education’s commitment to professional practice in higher   education: IELTS – The world’s leading provider of English language testing

IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, is the world’s leading English language proficiency test. IELTS Australia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IDP Education Pty Ltd, jointly owns the IELTS test with the British Council and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations.

Since its launch in 1989, IELTS has been an innovator in English language testing and was the first to measure the ability to communicate in all four language skills – listening, reading, writing, and speaking.

IELTS is available to test takers in more than 500 locations throughout more than 130 countries. More than 2,000 institutions and organizations within the United States recognize and accept IELTS accreditation.

Every aspect of the IELTS test – from test design and administration, to the marking and reporting of results – is subject to the highest quality controls, security procedures and integrity management practices.

This rigor has ensured that IELTS remains trusted and recognized by immigration authorities and government departments in almost all English-speaking countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. More than 6,000 institutions and faculties of further and higher education in all major English-speaking countries – as well as government agencies, professional associations and employers – recognize and use IELTS scores.
