IELTS – the International English Language Testing System – is the world’s most popular English language test. It is developed by some of the world’s leading experts in language assessment and evaluates all of your English skills – reading, writing, listening and speaking.

The test reflects how you’ll use English to study, work and live in an English-speaking environment.

Study, work and live abroad

IELTS is accepted by more than 10,000 organisations in over 140 countries. Those organisations include governments, academic institutions and employers, with 3,000 in the USA alone.

Get where you want to go

In most countries where English is the main language, you’ll need evidence of English language skills to apply for jobs and university courses.

IELTS in Greece

IELTS is widely accepted here in Greece. Many leading Greek universities, private colleges and other institutions of higher education, as well as private employers and government agencies (including ASEP), recognise IELTS scores as a trusted and valid indicator of ability to communicate in English.

IELTS and the Common European Framework (CEFR)

IELTS is also recognised by the Council of Europe.

The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) provides a basis for the mutual recognition of language qualifications, thus facilitating educational and occupational mobility.
