Official Test Centre – IELTS and UKVI

  • Welcome to IELTS, the International English Language Testing System. The official test is offered at Global Village English Centres - Vancouver, Canada, in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

    IELTS is designed to assess the language ability of candidates who need to study or work where English is the language of communication.

    IELTS is jointly managed by Cambridge English Language Assessment, British Council and IDP: IELTS Australia.

    Since 1989, IELTS has been proven and trusted worldwide to provide a secure, global, authentic and customer-focused test which measures true to life ability to communicate in English.

    More than 9,000 education institutions, faculties, government agencies and professional organisations around the world recognise IELTS scores as a trusted and valid indicator of ability to communicate in English.

    Over 2 million people a year are now using IELTS to open doors throughout the English-speaking world and beyond. The test is taken every year across 130 countries, and is one of the fastest growing English language tests in the world, and sets the standard in integrity, research and innovation.

    We currently offer tests in Vancouver, Richmond, North Vancouver, Kelowna, Prince George, and Fort St. John.

    Global Village Vancouver IELTS Test Centre is an approved UK Visa & Immigration testing location and we are pleased to offer IELTS testing for study and migration to the UK. Testing for UKVI of the Academic, General, and Life Skills IELTS will be on a quarterly basis.
