UAlg IELTS Examination Center, in partnership with the British Council

If you need to prove your level of English knowledge for specific purposes, the University of Algarve offers you that possibility, through the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). This international project is managed by three partners: British Council, University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations and IDP: IELTS Australia.
The IELTS exam is designed to assess the language skills of candidates who intend to study or pursue a professional activity where English is the language of communication. Candidates have the possibility to choose the "Academic" module, which is required by higher education institutions, or the "General Training", required by employers.
It should be noted that IELTS complies with the highest international standards of linguistic assessment, it is recognized worldwide, and is also a requirement for attending MBA, Masters and PhD courses in Erasmus Mundus in Portugal. In this exam four skills are assessed: listening, reading, writing and speaking.
