The effectiveness of IELTS has been proven since 1989, and it has gained a trust vote worldwide for providing an authentic, safe, global and client-centered exam that assesses communication competence in every day English environments. Over 10.000 educational institutions, governmental agencies and professional organizations in 140 countries around the world acknowledge IELTS as a reliable and valid indicator of the skills necessary to accurately communicate in English.
IELTS is designed to assess the language competence of candidates who need to study or work where English is the main language. In Colombia and around the world, IELTS is used as a benchmark in communicative English for migration, qualified work applications, university access and graduation, master's degree programs and other professional designations.
With over 3 million tests taken last year, IELTS is the world's most popular English language aptitude test for higher education and global migration, and it states the standards for integrity, research and innovation.
