Students who wish to enter universities or colleges in UK, Australia and New Zealand may have their English proficiency evaluated through the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) instead of TOEFL test. Taking the IELTS may be required of applicants of certain nationalities in the screening process in order for the applicants to obtain a visa. The test consists of four sections: reading (60 min), writing (60 min), listening (40 min), and speaking (11-14 min). These four elements are separately scored on each section using a band scale scoring system to arrive at the total score of for the four sections. A score between 6.0 and 6.5 is required for admission into universities and colleges of the three abovementioned countries. The fee is 25,380 yen (including tax).

The test score is usually announced within 13 business days from the test date, and then mailed to the address of the test taker. The score is valid for two years (as of July 2017).
