Take your IELTS Test at IH Barcelona

We extend our apologies to IELTS test takers who are not able to take their tests at the moment.

IELTS testing will restart at this Test Centre as soon as the current exceptional situation comes under control and national and regional authorities authorise a return to work. In the meantime, we will contact all those affected, and bookings will be transferred to later test dates.

Anticipating high future demand for test places, we will be publishing additional test sessions up to the end of July and recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.

Once we open again, we have the capacity to open additional sessions if they are needed.

The two versions of the IELTS test

There are two versions of the IELTS test and the reason you're doing the IELTS test will decide which version you do:

  • The Academic version is mainly for people who want to do an undergraduate or postgraduate university course or join a professional organisation.
  • The General Training version measures proficiency in a practical, everyday context and is often a Visa requirement for people planning to migrate to an English-speaking country, join a training programme below degree level or do work experience.

If you are applying to an organisation, it's very important to check with them to make sure that you do the correct IELTS test.


IELTS is accepted by more than 9,000 organisations, including educational institutions, employers, immigration authorities and professional bodies, in over 145 countries around the world.

IELTS is the preferred test of English for students intending to study in the UK, the USA, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
