IELTS testimonials

Find out what candidates say about taking IELTS in Belgium:

Study opportunities

'I took the IELTS Academic at the British Council. I passed the exam with 7.5 out of 9 (7.5 is the score asked by Ox-Bridge to begin a Master degree). IELTS is really the key to access higher education in English and I think this is a quite reachable goal for students here in Louvain...' – A.G. (student), Brussels.

'I took IELTS for Academic purposes. It was mandatory and I needed to achieve 7.5 or above. The ambiance of the test day was conductive of taking exams and I felt welcome. This test will allow me to take the course I have always dreamt of.' – A.S. (student), Brussels.

Work opportunities

'My boyfriend is going to work for one year in Australia and I’d like to join him. If I pass IELTS this will give me the opportunity to work there too. The test day was less stressful that I expected and the staff was very friendly.'  – H. VDB, Leuven

Semester abroad

'IELTS is opening for me the doors to study for one semester in Vienna to improve my English and German and meet lots of people.' – M.H (student) LLN

Exchange programmes

'I had to take IELTS to go on an exchange next year. The organisation is professional and the staff is nice. Good job.' – G.H. (student), Ottignies

Special needs

'I wanted to do a postgraduate degree in Canada for which I had to sit an English language test. I tried to apply for another language test available in Belgium but they were not helpful in regard to my dyslexia. With IELTS I was able to get adapted exam conditions in relation to my needs.' – I.T. (student), Brussels.
