IELTS, the International English Language Testing System, assesses your English language ability. It is designed for people who want to study or work where English is the main language of communication.

The test has four parts:

  • listening
  • reading
  • writing
  • speaking

It is important to practice your English as much as possible through reading, speaking and listening. To help you understand the test format and sample questions, IELTS has two volumes of official practice materials:

  • Vol. 1 Official IELTS Practice Materials (with CD)
  • Vol. 2 Official IELTS Practice Materials (with DVD)

These resources are available from the MUELC IELTS application desk for A$35.

The IELTS Information for Candidates booklet ((PDF, 0.77 MB)) has more information about getting ready for your test. If you require additional assistance, please contact our IELTS Test Centre.
