Requirements for recognising organisations

There are a few requirements for organisations applying to recognise IELTS:

  • If your organisation is based in the UK, it must be on the UK Border Agency’s list of registered sponsors before it can be accepted by IELTS.
  • All organisations must state that they recognise IELTS on their websites, wherever they are based in the world.

Let your applicants know!

Once you’re registered as a recognising organisation, you can help prospective candidates in their decision-making by publishing the IELTS scores you require on your organisation’s website.

An added benefit of this is that it helps to streamline your application processes, reducing your need to respond to detailed enquiries.

Become a recognising organisation and let IELTS help you find people with the appropriate English language skills.
