This test will be sat in Hamilton at Wintec's City Campus.

IELTS assesses all of a student's English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking, and is designed to reflect how students will use English at study, at work, and at play, in their new life abroad.

There are two versions of the IELTS test:

  • IELTS Academic
  • IELTS General Training

To check which version of the test needed, please read IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training. Both modules cover all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

The IELTS test is delivered in conjunction with MIT but all of our tests are held in Hamilton.
