IELTS London: Some Major Available Test Centers in the City

Down below you will find some of the biggest test centers in London.

University of Westminster

This is the second-largest IELTS test centre in the UK and around 7,000 to 8,000 language students chose to take the test here. University of Westminster is centrally located at 101 New Cavendish Street, very close to Oxford Circus on the Central line. They offer 3 exams a month (Academic and General Training) which are always on a Saturday and all four skills are tested on the same day.

International House

This international chain has several exam centres in central London and the exact location of your exam is confirmed after registration. They hold exams every week on Thursdays and Saturdays, and speaking tests are held on Fridays and Saturdays. They also hold UKVI (UK Visas and Immigration) exams when there is sufficient demand, for those who wish to study and work in the UK.

Please note that International House also has test centres in Barnet in North London and Stratford in East London, each offering roughly two exam dates per month.

West London College

This is reputedly London’s top-performing college and offers four exam dates a month at two locations. Tests take place on Thursday or Saturday and all four skills are tested on the same day.

Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College are also a UKVI approved test centre and offer these tests as required. It is located on Gliddon Road and the nearest tube station is Baron’s Court.

The other test centre is at Regent’s University which is in the Inner Circle of Regent’s Park. It is mostly easily reached from either Regent’s Park tube station or Baker Street.

Once the exam is over, you can breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy the park, the lake and its wildlife, including a variety of birds.

Eurocentres – Central and South West London

Eurocentres are very proud of their central London test centre at 56 Eccleston Square, just five minutes from Victoria station, offering a peaceful venue with excellent transport links. Test takers have the possibility to choose up to four exam dates a month and all four test components, including the speaking one which takes place face to face with an IELTS examiner, always take place on the same day.

They also have another test centre in Greenwich, South West London, at 70 Court Road. This test centre is on the grounds of Eltham Palace, a medieval palace which was converted into an Art Deco mansion. The nearest train station is Mottingham and all trains are operated by Southeastern. There are one or two exam dates available per month.
