IELTS Academic is designed for people planning to study in higher education or those seeking professional registration. It assesses whether you are ready to begin studying or training in an environment where English is the language used.

If you’re planning to move overseas to an English speaking country and are seeking professional registration, it is likely that you will be asked to provide evidence of your English language ability. IELTS results are accepted by many professional associations that have set minimum language requirements. Most of these associations request an IELTS Academic result, but it is a good idea to contact the organisation to confirm.
