IELTS academic preparation course

IELTS is the International English Language Testing System. It measures ability to communicate in English across all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking.

To prepare you for IELTS, we offer a face-to-face course at Renison University College with a certified instructor (16 hours of class time). All study materials are made available through our online platform (Canvas) and will remain available after the course has finished.

NOTE: these course materials are removed approximately 3 months after the course has finished.

This course includes face-to-face classroom instruction and online preparation coursework. 

Classroom lessons will focus on preparation for the Academic IELTS examination at a higher level (6.0 - 7.5 IELTS band score). Students will work on the four language skill areas (Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking) as well as study vocabulary and select grammar.  Detailed instructor feedback will be provided.

Renison is an IELTS testing location. Learn more about how you can write the IELTS test at Renison.
