Live in the UK

Live or work in the UK

The United Kingdom is the fifth largest economy in the world and offers a wide range of job opportunities. With its good working conditions, average salary of £29,009 (Office for National Statistics survey 2018), and many international communities, it continues to be a popular destination for international graduates.

If you are taking the IELTS test to support a UK visa application to work or live in the UK, you will need to take one of the following tests:

  • IELTS for UKVI (UK Visas and Immigration) Academic
  • IELTS for UKVI General Training 
  • IELTS Life Skills 

Which of these tests you take – and the score you need – will depend on both your visa requirements and/or the requirements of the institution where you plan to work.

Check out which IELTS test is suitable for you.
