IELTS (International English Language Testing Systems) is seen as proof of your English language skills for study, work and immigration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA.
IELTS scores are recognized by universities and colleges, employers, immigration authorities and other official bodies..
The level of this course is: from upper-intermediate (B2) to advanced (C1). To join this course, you need to at least be at the intermediate (B1) level. Because of that, you will receive an invitation for an official Cambridge Placement Test after you sign up. This is a comprehensive online test and gives a good indication of your language level (with regards to reading and listening). Based on the result, we will offer specific advice. If you like, we can also assess your speaking skills, in addition to the Cambridge Placement Test. You can indicate this on the registration form. More information can be found here.

During the exam, all language skills are tested at a high level. To be well prepared and to achieve a good result, we strongly recommend that you do self-study for at least 1 hour a day. Naturally, the teacher will guide you in this.
In addition, you have to take into account that the necessary homework assignments must be done outside the self-study hours (especially writing skills and reading skills).
We use an ELO (Electronic Learning Environment). The teacher will upload homework assignments and extra materials, as well as personal feedback to the ELO.
It is possible to pay the course fee in two installments.
We charge a one-time €10.00 administration fee.
