Tremendous growth of IELTS numbers is confirmed worldwide

The number of organisations accepting IELTS (International English Language Testing System) results has increased from 9,000 to 10,000 this year, cementing the test’s position as the world’s leading English language test for education and global migration purposes.

Global recognition is one of the reasons why the number of people taking IELTS continues to grow, with 2.9 million tests taken only in 2016.

The growth in recognising organisations – which include universities, schools, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies – is an indication of how these bodies trust and value IELTS results as a secure, valid and reliable indication of a test taker’s English language proficiency.

Warwick Freeland, Managing Director at IDP IELTS Australia, said: “Around the world people are choosing to take IELTS to help achieve their lifelong learning, career and migration goals. We are committed to continually improving our customers’ experiences especially as IELTS is often taken at a significant juncture of their lives.

PeopleCert is an IELTS Official Test Centre in Cyprus, Germany and Greece in partnership with IDP Education.

IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge English Language Assessment.
