IELTS/Academic English Course at Milner School

What is IELTS and its purpose?

IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System. This English language testing system tests a full range of English skills including Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. IELTS is owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English

The IELTS Course has a range of purposes; some study this course to improve their job opportunities, to apply for a university course (all British universities and colleges accept IELTS results) or to settle in a country where English is the first language. Perhaps you simply want more confidence in your English language skills. 

'IELTS for UKVI' is available in the UK for immigration purposes. This means that IELTS can be used to prove your English language abilities in support of a UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) application. You need to book your UKVI test at an approved centre in the UK. Booking your test in advance is essential.

There are two types of IELTS Courses - general and academic. Milner School of English in Wimbledon offer the IELTS Academic Course. Listening and Speaking are the same for both tests, but the subject matter of the Reading and Writing sections differs depending on which test you take. It uses a nine-band scale to clearly identify levels of proficiency, from non-user (band score 1) through to expert (band score 9).

For General IELTS you can study in a General English Course and we can support your studies with General IELTS material from our Learning Resource Centre - Click here for more information.
