IELTS: The IELTS is required of all applicants who are not native English speakers or who do not have a bachelor's or master's degree from an institution where the language of instruction is English.

When you book your test, please be sure it is the correct version since no other versions of the test are accepted. The "IELTS for UKVI" test will provide you with a Unique Reference Number (URN) which you will need to make your Tier 4 visa application.
