10 most popular study destinations for students in Ireland

  • I had to take a language test and chose for IELTS as you will get your results after 13 days. I also found out that there are a lot of webpages meant to help you get ready for the test.

  • I took the IELST test which was a rewarding experience and the first challenging step to prove I was capable to study abroad.

  • I have chosen IELTS, because it is cheaper and reflects more what you can deal with than how you can circle the grammar closed questions. I liked that test, because you can handle the topics of the two essays there as you wish.

  • More than 800 British Council test locations
  • Accepted by more than 9,000 institutions
  • More than 2.5 million tests taken last year
