The British Council is partnering with Sabis Network schools in the UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar to offer IELTS tests for its students.
Through this partnership, students enrolled in Sabis schools will benefit from additional learner support on the English proficiency test, the ability to sit for the test in a familiar location, and easy access to the registration process.
"For students planning to apply to university, IELTS is considered the preferred test of English for academic study and is recognised and accepted by 11,000 institutions around the world and has a high in-country recognition for domestic studies too.
“We will create access to the world’s leading English proficiency test and related learner support for the students who register to take the exam. The IELTS test is one of the prerequisites for international opportunities in higher education and career progression. With the opening of the new test venues, students at the schools will have more convenience in terms of easy accessibility and a simplified registration process.
"The partnership is an important step that reflects the British Council's commitment to continue supporting educational institutions in the UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar,” said Deep Adhikari, Director Examinations Gulf South Cluster, British Council.
Sabis Vice President Victor Saad commented: “For over 135 years, our network of college-preparatory schools has been dedicated to providing students with a top-quality education that prepares them for admission to colleges and universities of their choice. This new partnership with the British Council further solidifies our commitment to our students and to offering them all that they need to succeed.”
