The University of Sydney Centre for English Teaching (CET) is an authorised IELTS test venue. We also offer a quality IELTS test preparation course to help students prepare for the English test.
The IELTS English test venue at Sydney University Darlington Campus (USYD) has changed its operations. The Darlington Campus office will now be open only on Fridays and Mondays each week. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, enquiries for tests at Darlington and Lidcombe are now dealt with by the IELTS office at Macquarie University. On Tues-Thurs, for information, please call 02 9850 7267. All IELTS English tests are still held at the Darlington and Lidcombe campuses.
The IELTS English test provides an excellent framework to test students learning English as a second language (ESL). It can be used for your study, visa or professional requirements.
You may choose to take either the Academic or General Training version. Both versions test English speaking, writing, reading and listening. The English speaking test is conducted with an examiner and is given within one week of the other three tests.
IELTS is globally recognised by more than 8000 institutions, government agencies, and other professional associations; in over 135 countries and by more than 6000 educational institutions around the world.
