The British Council Switzerland offers IELTS tests in Berne, Zurich, Geneva, St. Gallen, Lugano (Manno), Basel, Sierre and Lausanne.
We currently run 44 tests per year in Switzerland.
Places are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so we strongly recommend that you register online at least two months prior to the test date. Please note, once all the test places have been assigned and the session is full, the test will no longer appear on our online registration system.
You will receive an email one week before the test date confirming the venue for your test and the timetable. Please note that the Listening, Reading and Writing components of the test take place in the morning, followed by the Speaking component in the afternoon on the same day. You should therefore make sure to be available for the whole test day.
To find all upcoming test dates in all Switzerland, please see our online booking system.
Venue details will be confirmed in the information email you will receive approximately one week before the test.
If you haven't received an email after this time, please contact us immediately.
The fee for the IELTS test is CHF 369.
