Top Courses in IELTS Preparation

A course is a discrete unit of academic study and work for high school or secondary education graduates. Guided by an instructor and a predefined curriculum, students engage in education on a given subject over a period of weeks or months, either part- or full-time.

Prospective students may ask, “What are courses in IELTS preparation?” The IELTS—International English Language Testing System—is a standardized test of nonnative speakers’ proficiency with English. IELTS preparation courses equip students to take on the exam, refreshing and refining students' English skills while providing practice questions and tests to develop familiarity with the standardized test’s structure.

Taking courses in IELTS preparation allows students to exercise and hone their skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking English. Students also develop test-taking strategies such as time management, critical reading and assessing and prioritizing questions, useful skills for both the IELTS and other standardized exams.

Though many schools offer courses in IELTS preparation, the duration and expected costs differ between them. Future students should research the institutions and courses they’re interested in to learn more about registration fees, tuition and other important information.

Courses in IELTS preparation generally lead students towards a potential career in an English-speaking country rather than a specific career path. The academic module certifies students for higher education or registration in professional fields, while the general training module is more broadly suited for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand or the UK and subsequent education or training. It’s possible for high-scoring students, following a tertiary degree, to work as IELTS examiners or trainers.

The international appeal and relevance of courses in IELTS preparation ensure that online and distance learning options are available for many schools. To begin, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
