It’s often mandatory for international students to have a 6.0 - 7.5 International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score to enroll in postgraduate programs.

So how do you get a good score? There are several methods.

  • Understand how the test will be structured. There are excellent sample papers you can look at here, which you can use to determine what you’re struggling with.
  • Do a few test papers. The best thing you can do when looking over practice questions is to complete a few past exams to get a feel for how you should budget your time. Studies have shown that active learning by engaging with an activity is far more effective than simply reading over something or listening to a lecture.
  • Book an appointment with a professional IELTS tutor. These are people who are intimately familiar with what will be on the test, what you need to know and how to help you learn it. If you don’t mind spending some money to boost your grades, this is the way to do it.

We’ve also compiled a list of the best testing locations around Australia, as well as their contact details and availability.
