Which organisations accept IELTS scores?

Choosing IELTS gives you more options for the future. IELTS is accepted by more than 11,500 organisations in over 140 countries. This includes:

  • Universities, schools, training colleges and tertiary institutes

  • Government departments and agencies

  • Professional and industry bodies

  • Companies and employers.

What IELTS score do you need?

Universities, colleges, employers and migration bodies each set their own IELTS score requirements, depending on the level of English they require for their purposes. That's why the score you are asked to demonstrate for entry to high school is different from the score you are asked to demonstrate for professional registration.

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced changes to the English test requirements for Student Direct Stream (SDS) applicants from 10 August 2023. Test takers who sit the IELTS Academic only need an overall band score of 6.0. Read more.

Please note this data is updated weekly. It's always best to confirm the score you need directly with your chosen organisation.
