MANILA, Philippines – IELTS Fair 2024 is coming to Manila, Cebu and Davao this March. Holding the fair for the first time inside popular malls Shangri-La Plaza, Ayala Malls Central Bloc, and Ayala Malls Abreeza, the British Council hopes to support more dreamers and make the world’s most popular English language test more accessible for more Filipinos.

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is the widely accepted and recognised English test taken by students and professionals wanting to study, work and live abroad.

Samantha Smith, Regional Director for Exams, proudly shares, “We organise IELTS Fairs to provide everyone with the opportunity to engage in face-to-face conversations with us and our partners about unlocking their future potential abroad. Enhancing English proficiency through IELTS is a strategic step towards future-proofing your career. Having a globally recognised language certification open doors to diverse career goals and create pathways to seize opportunities worldwide. Together with our partners, we look forward to meeting and helping these hopefuls carve a better path for themselves.”

IELTS Fair aims to democratise access to this essential English proficiency assessment, making it easily accessible to as many Filipinos as possible. This year, the British Council breaks away from traditional venues like hotels, striving to create inclusive spaces convenient to reach. The organisation’s goal for 2024 is to establish fairs in locations that resonate with accessibility, allowing test takers to attend with their family and turn the day into an enjoyable experience.

The IELTS test reflects how test takers use English to study, work and live in an English-speaking environment. It is accepted by more than 11,000 organisations including government, academic institutions and employers in over 140 countries.

Anyone with dreams of studying or working abroad in countries such as the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand and Canada are invited to come to any of the following dates and venues:
