Online test instead of IELTS

Due to the high quality of work and trust in Kiwi Education, many schools now allow us to take an internal English test instead of the IELTS international exam.
The main advantages of this feature are:

  • Internal tests of educational institutions are free, in contrast to IELTS
  • You take the test either in one of our offices, or online at home


The structure of the test will be the same as the IELTS. That is, you can use all the same examples, courses and training techniques. The test consists of 4 parts:

  • Reading
  • Listening
  • Writing
  • Speaking

Please note that Reading and Writing modules, and sometimes Listening, are handled under the supervision of our managers in the office or online via a videoconference on Skype.
If the modules are passed successfully, an interview (Speaking) with an employee of the educational institution of choice via Skype will be scheduled.


Changes from NZQA on August 18, 2017:

  • An internal exam will be able to count only for establishments of the 1st and 2nd categories of education.
  • Since August 18, 2017, an internal exam will be available only to countries where student visa refusals do not exceed 20%. 
    This concerns both the online test outside of New Zealand, and internal tests if you are already in the country. Thus, the internal exam is still available for citizens of the following countries: Russia – 17%, Kazakhstan – 14%, Belarus – 0%, Latvia – 0%, Lithuania – 0%, Estonia – 0%.
    Full list of countries is on the official site.
  • You can check all tests on the NZQA website,that universities accept when applying for diploma programs.
