IELTS approved for British immigration system

Lahore, March 08, 2008: The International English Testing System (IELTS), which is run by educators in Australia and the United Kingdom, has been approved for use in the UK immigration system, according to a press release issued by the British Council. The press release says that the UK Home Office is implementing a new points-based immigration system for all non-European Union nationals.

The new system groups potential immigrants into five tiers. The recent approval of the IELTS certificate is for tier 1, which includes highly skilled migrants such as doctors, scientists and entrepreneurs. As part of the application process, applicants are required to provide evidence of their English language abilities. The government has approved IELTS at a band score of 6.5 and above as suitable to verify that ability. At tier 1, applicants need to demonstrate English language skills equivalent to level C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Daily Times
