Take IELTS at Externado
Externado forms an institutional alliance with the British Council
The agreement provides a discount for Externadista community members (current undergraduate and graduate students, teaching faculty, administrative staff, and alumni) taking the IELTS exam.
The British Council is a United Kingdom-based organisation specialising in educational and cultural relations with the rest of the world, and is present in more than 108 countries. In Colombia, in 2019, the organisation is celebrating its 80th anniversary; worldwide, it has been in existence for 85 years. In Colombia, the non–profit government organisation works in the fields of education, society, arts, and exams.
The agreement gives a 10% discount on the total cost of the IELTS test, and also the opportunity to take it at our university campus.
Likewise, students at other institutions may also present the exam at the Externado.
Presentation of the IELTS
IELTS is recognised worldwide and accepted in more than 140 countries. More than 10,000 institutions around the world recognise the exam for different purposes; for example, study and work abroad or in Colombia, and for migration-related issues in countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or the United Kingdom.
The alliance, achieved by the Externado’s Finance, Government and International Relations Languages Area, is part of the strategy within the framework of student mobility, to strengthen our students’ international profile.
