Download or read through a copy of the IELTS handbook for more detailed information.
The Academic Reading and Writing Modules assess whether a candidate is ready to study or train in English at an undergraduate or postgraduate level. Admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the UK, Australia, Canada or New Zealand is based on the results of these Modules.
If you want to study using English at undergraduate or postgraduate level or you are applying to nursing or medical councils, you should take the Academic Reading and Writing modules.
If you are planning to undertake non-academic training or apply for immigration to Australia, Canada or New Zealand, usually you are required to take the General Training Reading and Writing modules.
This information serves as a guide only. Candidates should check with the receiving organisations about entry requirements, before deciding which module they need to take.
