There is one British Council test centre in Italys capital Rome. The average IELTS score of test takers with Italian as native language is 6.1. In 2017, the average IELTS score of test takers in Italy was 6.7. According to our database, there are 70 universities in Italy that accept the IELTS test. The average IELTS score requirement for organisations accepting IELTS in Italy is 6.

Praising Italy might be the most complicated thing in the world: where do you even start?. Do you mention a bunch of famous Italians, like da Vinci, Borgia, Versace, and Vivaldi? Or just mention the fields they revolutionised, like Architecture, Music, Engineering, and Fashion? I could just focus on the brilliant landscapes and the UNESCO World Heritage sites, or how awesome Italian people are, with their pastas, wines, and signature hand gesture, but it would be redundant. Bottom line is simply: Italy is awesome! Italy is home to the oldest university in the world, University of Bologna; and, since its inception, the educational system never stopped growing and improving. With student discounts, thousands of Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, and a beautiful and diverse country, there’s no wonder students pick Italy as their international destination. It might seem there aren’t enough words in the world to express what a beautiful and breath-taking experience studying in Italy can be; but, since someone felt the need to describe this feeling of shortness of breath as an illness (No, really… Google “Florence syndrome”), you can only assume what a marvellous period in your life this will be.

Italian universities have programmes that are taught either in English or in Italian. That’s why, in order to be accepted at one of their programmes, you will need to provide proof of either English or Italian proficiency.

To study in English at one of the universities in Italy, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.

  • I did the IELTS. It took more or less one month to prepare it on my own by practicing with helpful exercises and exam simulations on the official website.

  • I chose IELTS as it was the most accessible one at the time and moreover I could use in the future for applying to American universities.

  • I took IELTS to apply for universities in Sweden, Poland, Austria, Japan and South Korea and I would say that I liked it because it was paper based.
