UKVI IELTS test

Learn more about your English Language requirements from our expert lawyers

The International English Language Test System is a government-approved and internationally renowned English Language test. It is used in cases in which you are required to prove your English Language abilities to apply for certain UK visas. The IELTS UKVI regulated test assesses each of the four key areas of your language abilities: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

If you are applying for a UK visa or to settle in the UK and you are from a non-English speaking country, you will need to prove your knowledge of English.

FAQs

Who needs to take the IELTS UKIV test?

If you are applying for certain UK visas, Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) or British Citizenship, you will be required to meet specific English Language requirements.

The IELTS test is a government approved test which shows the Home Office, Universities and UK Businesses that you have met these requirements.

Most adults applying for a visa on the UK Points-Based System are required to demonstrate competence in all four areas of the English Language, and this is the same for anyone applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK or for British Citizenship.

Where can I take the English test for citizenship?

The UK has more than 50 locations where you can take the IELTS test. You can also take the test in a variety of different countries around the world if you are not in the UK, in person or online.

How can IAS help?

Obtaining an English Language qualification can be complicated; it is often difficult to know which UK visas require applicants to meet English Language requirements and to what level.

Our expert immigration lawyers can offer you detailed advice on the English Language requirements you need to meet, whether you are applying for Entry Clearance, UK Settlement or Asylum.

Your lawyer can talk you through everything that is expected of you, how you should prepare and the kind of content which will be covered in each section of the IELTS UKVI test.
