Nigerians To Pay N107,500 For IELTS From September 2023

Information from the British Council on Thursday noted that Nigerians will now pay the sum of N107,500 for academic International English Language Testing System examinations from September 2023, The PUNCH reports.

Originally, the United Kingdom requires the citizens of any country willing to relocate to the UK for work or study opportunities to take the IELTS.

The cost of the test, which currently stands between N80,000 and N90,000 in Nigeria, is almost three times the country’s minimum wage of N30,000.

But the council noted that the hike was necessary to sustain the high quality of standards for the “testing experience.”

“Dear valued Test Taker, We would like to inform you that effective from 1 September 2023, there will be a price increase for IELTS tests offered by the British Council.

“The new prices will be NGN 107,500 for IELTS Academic and IELTS General Training, NGN 116.000 for UK Visas and Immigration and NGN 104,000 for Life Skills.”

It added, “The new prices are necessary to sustain the high-quality of standards for your testing experience.”

“Thank you for choosing the British Council,” a terse message on the council’s statement read.
