We provide a Cambridge IELTS exam preparation and course to help students reach their full potential and apply for the University course of their choice.

IELTS stands for International English Testing System. When undertaking this course, there are two modules which both test the students' reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.

Course Description

Do you want to go to University in the UK?

The Cambridge IELTS exam preparation course is internationally recognised and accepted worldwide by employers and educational institutes. Almost all universities in the UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand accept IELTS. Take the course to show your level of English.

Our experienced teachers will guide you through the stages of preparation for the Cambridge IELTS exam to make sure you reach your maximum potential and apply for the University course of your choice. The exams take place at the end of the course and you’ll be fully prepared to take them. ETC is an approved Cambridge IELTS course and exam test preparation centre, so you can take the computer-based exam with us too.


There are two modules: Academic and General. Both of the modules are graded using the same criteria, so there is no difference in the level of English. They both test your skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking. The only difference is the subject matter and the type of vocabulary used which varies to suit the diverse interests of candidates.

The academic module is for candidates wishing to study at undergraduate or postgraduate levels or seeking professional registration.

The general module is for candidates wishing to migrate to an English-speaking country and for those wishing to train or study at below degree level.

Who accredits IELTS?

IELTS is jointly managed by the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL), the British Council and IDP Education Australia: IELTS Australia.

The Exam

The IELTS exam preparation is designed to test English at all levels. There is no pass or fail with IELTS. Everyone gets a score to reflect their level of English language ability. Results are reported as band scores, on a scale from 1 (the lowest) to 9 (the highest).
