Most universities require at least 6.0 for undergraduate and 6.5 for entrance onto post graduate degrees. In our university preparation course we teach you essential strategies for each task on the IELTS exam papers to make sure you have the best chance of achieving the score you need. All students have full mock exams as part of the syllabus, helping students to cope with the pressure of exam conditions.

You can start our Academic English & IELTS exam preparation at any time of year. If you are below B1 level you must first join our general English program to improve your English.
