IELTS Academic is designed for those who want to study or train in a university that teaches in English at undergraduate or postgraduate level or institutions of higher and further education. Many professions (e.g. medical, nursing, accounting, engineering) also require an Academic test result for registration purposes.
IELTS General Training is for those who are going to English-speaking countries to do secondary education, work experience or training programs. This version of the test may be a visa requirement if you are planning to migrate to English speaking countries.
IELTS is accepted globally by more than 10,000 organisations including universities, professional bodies, employers and Australian student visa and migration applications. The IELTS General Training test is the only non-academic test of English accepted for migration to Australia.

“Examination place was quite clean and it’s location was easy to find. Employees were very friendly and helpful. They guided me throughout the test process. Also there is a room where you can lock your belongings safely. I would definitely suggest IDP as a choice of test center.”
