IELTS, the only test you need

IELTS, the one and only English test healthcare professionals need 

IELTS is the world’s most recognised English proficiency test that is accepted by many healthcare regulatory bodies and medical institutions.  Here are some of the reasons most healthcare professionals choose to take IELTS over other English tests:

Worldwide IELTS recognition

IELTS is accepted by more than 10,000 organisations,including top regulatory boards, hospitals, and universities, in over 140 countries.  IELTS helps bridge opportunities to medical professionals in countries like the UK, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.

IELTS is the most trusted English proficiency test

Established more than 30 years ago and with over 3.5 million test takers last year, IELTS is the world's most popular and trusted English proficiency test.  IELTS conducts face-to-face interview for the Speaking test which reflects real-life application of the English language. The delivery of the test is both consistent and secure through rigorous training and continual monitoring of test centres and examiners.

Nurses and other healthcare professionals now have the option to take the test on paper or computer.

Computer-delivered IELTS is available in Manila, Cebu, Baguio, and Pampanga only with the British Council.
