IELTS Modules: IELTS is available in two modules, Academic or General Training. You must decide prior to applying which module is best for you as we cannot advise you on which module you should take.  Please note that the General Training Module is not offered on all IELTS test dates. Regardless of whether you are entered for Academic or General Traning you will be tested in four skill areas: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking English.

Usually the Academic module is for people who want to study an undergraduate or postgraduate degree course or who wish to register with a professional body.

Usually the General Training module focuses on basic survival skills in a broader social and educational setting. General Training is suitable if you are joining a training programme or doing work experience in English speaking countries, but is not designed for degree level. This module is also suitable for those wishing to emigrate to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK.
