IELTS registration partners are individuals and organisations recognised by the British Council as official suppliers for referring students to IELTS test centres. They play a valuable role in helping us open up learning and migration opportunities for applicants in over 140 countries around the world.

Our registration partners may be agents, advisers, counsellors, corporations, schools or colleges; in short, any organisation that has a connection with people who are learning English, or who might benefit from doing so in order to pursue their learning, career, or migration ambitions.

A mutually beneficial relationship

To ensure our partners gain more than recognition from working with us, we offer a range of value-added services and benefits, typically delivered through formal IELTS Partnership Programmes, which vary from country to country.

These benefits may include:

  • an association with one of the leading names in English education and assessment
  • additional preparation resources
  • financial incentives
  • teacher or agent training 
  • and more.

To find out more about what partnership with the British Council can offer you, please get in touch.
