Introducing a new type of IELTS

IELTS on paper, IELTS on computer, and now IELTS Online! Yes, you will soon have the option to take the exam on your own computer at home!

Starting in 2022, IELTS candidates will no longer have to travel long distances to IELTS test centers to sit the test. With “IELTS Online”, simply book a test and take it remotely from a private location of your choosing — the same old IELTS you know and love, only more accessible and convenient.
