IELTS exam dates and exam bookings assistance

Due to unavoidable change to IELTS exam dates made by the British Council we cannot guarantee the exam dates as advertised on our site and Dates & Fees document. Exam dates are only being published three months in advance. We advise clients to take the test as soon as possible after the end of their course. We will be happy to direct clients to a partner organisation for booking the exam. 

Beautiful experience for my IELTS course. Perfect host family, great location, the food was good, teachers and the people who work there are also very nice!
