Study the 4 week online IELTS preparation course

IELTS Online is an intensive course aimed at preparing you for the Academic IELTS exam, developed and taught by the Language Centre at University of the Arts London (UAL).

Each week of the course will focus on 2 topics that prepare you for your IELTS exam. You will have lots of opportunities to develop and practise all 4 IELTS skills, with a skills test each week to check your progress.

As well as live classes and self-study sessions, you will also have tutorials with your teacher to give you feedback and guidance in your learning.

At the end of the course there will be a full IELTS practice exam with individual feedback.

Our online lessons are taught by friendly and experienced teachers. The learning platforms we use let students work together and learn in a classroom environment, which is important when studying at home. We also offer learning and wellbeing support from our student support team.
