What is Academic IELTS?

Academic IELTS focuses on the skills needed to succeed in a higher education learning environment and if you wish to study at a UK university or join an institute of higher education, you will need to study Academic IELTS.

Successful entry to an undergraduate or postgraduate course is dependent on the results of an Academic IELTS test, and the Academic strand of IELTS is a tougher programme of study than General Training IELTS.

How are Academic IELTS and General IELTS different?

Listening and speaking modules are identical across both IELTS tests, but reading and writing both differ.
