THE PROGRAMME The International English Language Testing System (IELTS) is a test of English language proficiency that is jointly managed by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations, British Council and IDP Education Australia. SELC offers preparation in the Academic Module intended for those who wish to further their studies with universities from the United Kingdom and Australia. This course will: 1. Familiarise prospective candidates with the format of the test. 2. Expose them to various question types and answering techniques. 3. Help them to be aware of and avoid common errors. At Stamford College Malacca, students will enjoy the benefits of experienced trainers as well as audio-visual computer laboratory facilities.

COURSE STRUCTURE There are two versions of the IELTS: the Academic Version and the General Training Version: The Academic Version is intended for those who want to enroll in universities and other institutions of higher education and for professionals such as medical doctors and nurses who want to study or practice in an Englishspeaking country. The General Training Version is intended for those planning to undertake non-academic training or to gain work experience, or for immigration purposes.

Students in the IELTS Audio-Visual Computer Laboratory IELTS has four parts Listening (30 minutes), Reading (60 minutes), Writing (60 minutes) and Speaking (1114 minutes). The total test time is 2 hours and 45 minutes. The Listening, Reading and Writing tests are done in one sitting. The Speaking test may be on the same day or up to seven days before or after the other tests.
