The British Council cannot accept payments made from banks (or other financial institutions) sanctioned by the UK or any other relevant jurisdiction. Where the British Council discovers evidence of payment from a sanctioned bank and/or sanctioned financial institution we will freeze all funds related to that payment and will be unable to deliver the service for which the payment was intended. Please therefore ensure that you do not make payments from an account in a sanctioned bank and/or sanctioned financial institution.

You can make the payment when you complete your online registration with one of the following:

What does the fee include? Our IELTS test fee includes exclusive preparation materials, free practice tests and much more.

Please note

When registering for IELTS you can choose between two test delivery models – In-person or Video Call Speaking (VCS).

In-person is the standard face-to-face IELTS speaking test. VideoCall Speaking (VCS) is a system which enables the delivery of the IELTS speaking test through a secure video connection over the Internet. This allows candidates to interact remotely with their examiner. 

The actual speaking test remains the same, but the mode of delivery is online. 

Please be informed that the test centre may change the speaking test delivery model. You will be notified accordingly if the delivery model of your test is changed. If this happens and you would like to apply for a refund or transfer please see this policy for more information.
