IELTS is not only the must-have test to study or work abroad. It is widely accepted in France. As a matter of fact, many prestigious French universities and higher education institutions recognise IELTS for educational purposes such as total or partial exemption from internal English examinations or tests as well as credits for international study programmes like Erasmus+. 


IELTS is recognized by the Council of Europe. The Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) provides a basis for the mutual recognition of language qualifications (like Cambridge English, TOEFL, TOEIC, etc.), thus facilitating educational and occupational mobility.
