Unlock the world with IELTS
The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is the world’s leading English language proficiency test, with over 1.7 million tests taken last year.
IELTS assesses all of your English skills — reading, writing, listening and speaking. The test is designed to reflect how you will use English while studying, working, and socialising in your new life abroad.
British Council Switzerland offers the test up to four times a month, in four major cities: Bern, Zürich, Geneva and St. Gallen.
IELTS is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations.
