Inspired by true stories, watch how these IELTS test takers went #BeyondTheTest.
‘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.’
‘The whole journey was a realisation of a lifelong dream. Successfully achieving my IELTS score with Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 9 and higher was my gateway to an ITA (Invitation to Apply – for permanent residency). Now I am just waiting for my Canadian Immigration Visa to be approved within three months.’
‘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.’
‘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 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.’
‘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.’
‘My first attempt in taking the IELTS was unsuccessful that I almost gave up on my dream. With perseverance and with the help of the British Council through IELTS, I was able to land my dream job in the United Kingdom. I am now working as a Hemodialysis Nurse and still aiming for other goals in life.’
