UOWD announces partnership with University of Dubai to deliver IELTS Testing

Sunday, 07 January, 2018

The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD), recently partnered with the University of Dubai to deliver IELTS testing at its campus in Dubai Academic City.

UOWD, an authorised IELTS testing centre in the UAE (under IDP Australia), will conduct its first testing at the University of Dubai on 6 January 2018 followed by monthly tests. Test takers in and around Academic City can choose to take their IELTS test conveniently at the University of Dubai which offers a comfortable testing environment for students.

With four sub-centres in Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah, Deira and Al Garhoud, UOWD is well positioned to provide prospective students from across the UAE access to the world’s most popular English language proficiency test.

“In the UAE and globally, IELTS tests are mandatory for students seeking admission to universities as well as for purposes such as immigration and employment. We are very pleased to be delivering IELTS testing at the University of Dubai thus expanding our reach to students studying in the Dubai Academic City area.  We look forward to a successful partnership with the University of Dubai”, commented Felix Lanceley, Director of Student Services & Academic Registrar at UOWD.

Nasser Al Muraqab, Chief Operating Officer at the University of Dubai said: “This is a unique opportunity for us to collaborate with IELTS partners, enabling us to offer a valuable service to students who want to prove their English language ability. Furthermore, it provides us with the opportunity to offer a range of value-added services to students in Dubai Academic City and surrounding areas including access to our state-of-the-art campus and its smart and green facilities”.

IELTS is a globally recognised and widely accepted test for assessing proficiency in the English language, which includes listening, reading, writing and speaking, for higher education and global migration with over 2.9 million tests taken in the last year. More than 10,000 organisations recognise IELTS as a secure, valid and reliable indicator of true to life ability to communicate in English for education, immigration and professional accreditation.

IELTS is jointly owned by British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and the Cambridge English Language Assessment.
