Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University recently became a testing centre for the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). IELTS is the standard worldwide English language proficiency test for higher education.
The centre is Suzhou’s second IELTS test centre, and the first exams took place on 22 January 2022.
The XJTLU IELTS test centre can provide two computer-based test services: IELTS and IELTS for United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (UKVI). There will be at least six test sessions per week, and 130 computer-based tests are planned for the first half of 2022 alone.
The examination environment and equipment maintain the high standards of computer-delivered IELTS test centres. The establishment of the new centre at XJTLU will enable candidates from both XJTLU and the local area to fulfil the requirements for IELTS registration conveniently.

The computer-delivered test rooms: each testing area is equipped with professional-grade computer equipment, silent keyboards, noise-cancelling headphones and ergonomic seats
