IELTS Academic


The Language Centre is a semi-open centre for the IELTS Academic. This means that both internal and external candidates may register to take the IELTS Academic at unibz on the official IELTS website.

Four good reasons for taking the IELTS Academic exam

  1. IELTS is the preferred exam by most academic and public institutions throughout the world.
  2. The IELTS exam will grant you admission to most English-language study programmes in the world.
  3. Preparing for the IELTS exam will help improve your Academic English and study skills for university.
  4. The British Council will provide you with a certificate that attests to the language proficiency you have attained in English.

International English Language Testing System - Academic

The IELTS Academic assesses your command of Academic English and particular study skills in listening and speaking, writing and reading. Obviously this exam is recognized by unibz.

It offers a band score that certifies any level of proficiency (CEFR level A2-C1) mainly for those who need English for study purposes. Most universities throughout the world recognize IELTS as an English-language entry requirement.

Health Emergency COVID-19

Due to the sudden increase in Covid-19 cases in Italy, particularly in South Tyrol, we have to cancel the possibility to sit the exam at unibz and the planned session on 12th December has been cancelled.

You can sit the exam at other centres nearby.

Please see below for dates and links which are in line with the exam prep course we are offering and please note that you can only direct inquiries regarding the exam itself to the British Council directly as unibz is only responsible for the exam preparation course and not the actual exams.
