IELTS preparation course

Student writing a test


Due to challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the English Language Institute has made the careful decision to cancel the IELTS preparation course in the Winter 2021 term. We are planning to resume the IELTS preparation course in the Spring 2021 term. We regret any inconvenience.

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 blended course as well as online course options. The blended course consists of in-class tutorials at Renison University College with a certified instructor and an online component that you can complete at home. We also offer preparation courses that can be done all online.

Renison is an IELTS testing location. For information on taking the IELTS test at Renison, click here.
