This online course prepares you for the IELTS exam (bands 6.5-7, both Academic and General).
You will have the opportunity to practice all exam-style tasks (reading, listening, speaking, writing) and get feedback on your speaking and writing from the instructor. The workload is appr. 1.5hrs/week.
IELTS is a basic requirement for entry to most European universities where proficiency in English is required. Many government agencies and professional bodies also recognise IELTS. In Helsinki, you can take the IELTS exam at FinnBrit (finnbrit.fi).
The online learning platform Moodle is used in this course. We recommend using a desktop or laptop computer to participate in this online course, because it is possible that Moodle does not work properly on smart phones.
If you use Omnia’s Moodle for the first time, please create your Moodle username three days before the course starts at the latest.
