What is Academic IELTS?

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

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 IELTS, which is more commonly used for secondary education, work experience or training programs.

How are Academic IELTS and General IELTS different?

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

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
