COVID-19 has had an impact on IELTS test centres around the world, however, we remain dedicated to making your transition to join ICMP in September as smooth as possible.

In countries where IELTS test centres remain open you should book the IELTS Academic test.

You can check to see the status of test centres near you at

We recommend that you book a test date as soon as possible as availability will be limited and the processing times will be longer than usual.

IELTS Indicator test

If IELTS test centres near you are closed, you can now take the IELTS Indicator test.

This is an online test that tests your English level in the same way as IELTS Academic. You are required to achieve the same results as stated in your course conditions.

We would advise that you book the IELTS Indicator test as soon as possible as we envisage availability for this test will be limited. You can book the test at

ICMP Internal English Assessments

If you are unable to sit either the IELTS Academic or IELTS Indicator test we will be able to internally assess your English level.

However, this will only be available to students where there is no possibility of taking an IELTS test.

Should you have to take the internal ICMP assessment test it will be in-line with the IELTS Academic test and overseen by an IELTS examiner.

Please contact our Admissions Manager, Darren Suckling ( if you require an internal English assessment.
