IELTS is a test to confirm the English level. The certificate issued on its results is recognized in all countries of the world. Some universities use IELTS results to estimate one’s language level and some are not.
Study in Europe and Russia
When enrolling at the European universities, the non-English speaking students must provide an IELTS certificate confirming their English language proficiency. The level of knowledge ranking is based on a nine-point scale. The passing rate is determined by educational institution and can’t be equal for different fields. In other word, if you didn’t get 9 points, it does not mean you unable to enroll. Study in Europe without IELTS is available only to students with English as native.
Russian universities normally have similar to Europe entry requirements to the language skills: if you want to study at a state language – you should be fluent in this language. The point is that in Russia English is not main, so IELTS can’t be asked in base. But some universities, provide English-taught programmes for international students, require curtain language skills proved with IELTS certificate.
So, if you’re not English native but programme you need is teaching in English, you should ask university international department stuff about entry requirements first. Create a personal account on our web and you will be able to connect universities directly.
