The course prepares students who want to sit for IELTS (International English Language Testing System). The course will build a learner's ability to produce cohesive, coherent and grammatically accurate speech and written essays. Vast exposure to a variety of lexis will enable learners to understand, deal with and use vocabulary for academic purposes. Lessons will be centred around prescribed IELTS tasks with focus on skills-based acquisition.

IELTS is jointly managed by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL).

An IELTS score is required by students as evidence of English proficiency mainly by institutions of higher learning, colleges and universities. Individual institutions and faculties set their own IELTS requirements according to the specific language needs of the course, study or work program.

There is no pass or fail in IELTS. Candidates are graded on their performance using scores from 1 to 9 for each part of the test – Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. The results from the four parts then produce an Overall Band Score. Each band corresponds to a level of English competence. All parts of the test and the Overall Band Score can be reported in whole and half bands, eg 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0.
