The IELTS UKVI is one of the admission requirements by most UK universities and colleges for issuing an unconditional letter of acceptance and is required by the British consulate for processing the UK student visa.


Both types, including, the standard academic IELTS and the UKVI IELTS have the same bands, those four bands or sections are; speaking, writing, listening, reading and in both types of IELTS exam cover similar questions, the same exam process, and both have the same test duration.

The main difference is that the UKVI IELTS test is available in limited and carefully selected test centers such as the British Council, University of Wollongong Dubai, HCT Dubai, HCT Abu Dhabi, HCT Sharjah and a few more.
