IELTS Professional (Part-time)

If you want to study in Australia or get an Australian visa, you might need to sit an IELTS test. We can help you develop the skills you need to succeed in our IELTS Professional preparation course.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) assesses the English language proficiency of people who want to study or work where English is the main language. It is recognised by educational institutions, governments and employers all over the world.

IELTS Professional will prepare you for the IELTS test by boosting your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills.

Each class uses typical IELTS test exercises and texts. You will also learn test strategies specific to the format of the IELTS test. And you’ll practise speaking and communicating with your classmates.

When you get your IELTS results, you will be given an overall band score from 1.0 (non-user) to 9.0 (expert user). For most higher education programs, you will need a score between 6.0 and 7.5 to be eligible to apply.

This course is designed for students who need an IELTS score of at least 7.0 for entry into an Australian university or for an Australian visa application. Classes are in the evenings, so the course is perfect for busy professionals.
