    The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is an internationally recognised qualification and entry requirement for Universities in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, established over 21 years ago. It is also widely used by governments as a language proficiency guide when issuing work visas and is recognised by professional organizations.
