Who is it for?


If you would like to work or study in the UK and English is not your first language, you may need to take an IELTS examination. IELTS is the most widely recognised test of communicative English language ability, and Basil Paterson is the largest centre for this examination in Scotland.


Our intensive full-time IELTS course combines language development lessons with practice of all the examination skills and techniques you will need to excel in an IELTS exam. In addition, because Basil Paterson runs the examination centre, we are able to reserve a place for all students that choose to take an examination course with us.
