IELTS Academic – get ready for a higher education environment
The IELTS Academic test measures whether you have the level of English language proficiency needed for an academic, higher education environment. It reflects some of the features of academic language and assesses whether you are ready to begin studying or training.
Take this test if you want to:
- study at either undergraduate or postgraduate level anywhere in the world
- apply for Tier 4 Student Visa at a university that is a Tier 4 Sponsor in the UK
- work in a professional organisation in an English speaking country.
If you are applying to a UK University that has requested you to take an IELTS for UKVI (Visas and Immigration), find out more about IELTS for UKVI.

Format: There are four sections to the test: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. In Brazil, the written part of the exam (Listening, Writing and Reading) starts always at 1pm (local time).
If you choose a paper-based test, your Speaking interview will be scheduled directly by us. It may be scheduled on the morning of the test day or up to a week before (working days and hours included). You will receive notification in advance if your Speaking test is on a different day.
