Road to IELTS - Academic Module

Road to IELTS_Academic Module

The Road to IELTS - Academic module provides an introduction, advice and tutorials, as well as interactive practices and simulated mock tests. These will help people prepare for the IELTS academic exam for higher education or professional registration in an English-speaking environment.   

See the IELTS Academic syllabus for detailed information.

The OPL also offers the IELTS General Training Module.

The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language test for higher education and global migration. 

There are two types of IELTS test: the IELTS Academic and the IELTS General Training.

Both tests provide an assessment of four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking.

The IELTS Academic measures whether your level of English language proficiency is suitable for an academic environment or professional registration. It reflects aspects of academic language and assesses whether you’re ready to begin studying or training.
