Inspired by true stories, watch how these IELTS test takers went #BeyondTheTest.
‘In many ways, I think my decision to take IELTS with the British Council is the reason why I’m here in Canada, living my dream. I was able to maximise my IELTS preparation, not only for the test, but also for the new life I have embarked on.’
‘There was a time when I was sure I had given up on my career as a nurse. Going through the IELTS test not only made me more confident with my English skills but also allowed me to achieve my dream of working in the UK.’
‘IELTS was a key to my study-abroad journey. One of the best things about studying abroad is being part of a diverse group of people from all over the world. Being able to communicate well in English has allowed me to know more about their culture and vice-versa.’
‘It has always been my dream to work in the ‘Silicon Valley of Europe’. Now that I am here in Dublin, Ireland, I cannot help but smile looking back at how intense I prepared for the IELTS exam. All the hard work paid off because I have acclimated well since I arrived and loving every moment of my time here.’
‘The IELTS helped me bridge the gap between my professional skill set and better opportunities in the UK. With the help of the British Council, I surpassed the minimum requirements for both my work visa and professional registration.’
‘Taking IELTS opened a whole new world for me. I currently live in London with my husband and couldn't be more excited to see my daughter who will be joining us here soon. This dream started when I made the first step of choosing to take the test with the British Council.’
‘Taking IELTS has allowed me to pursue my dream to study in the UK through the IELTS Prize. I am grateful to have been chosen for the prize and truly honoured for the faith that the British Council has in my abilities and aspirations.’
‘IELTS is the reason I was able to continue my application to study college in Canada. Here in my new home, I found new friends in campus and have made new and wonderful experiences. I am looking forward to a rewarding career after I graduate.’
