British Council increases IELTS fee to N266,000 – second time in 2024

The British Council in Nigeria has increased the fee for the
academic international English language testing system (IELTS) examinations.


This is the second time the council will be hiking the
examination fee this year.


Last month, the price was increased by 29 percent from the
N107,500 that was being paid for the test.


IELTS on computer academic and general training modules was
set at N139,000; IELTS on paper academic and general training modules was
pegged at N134,000; the UK visas and immigration (UKVI) was increased to
N149,000; Life skills: N130,000; and one skill retake (O.S.R): N87,570.


In an update on its website cited on Thursday, the council
said it had reviewed the fees.


The new fee for IELTS on computer academic and general
training modules is now N266,000; IELTS on paper academic and general training
modules: N256,500; UKVI: N285,500; and life skills: N249,000.


“The above fees will be subject to review based on the
prevailing market dynamics,” the council said.


 “The change in fees
is due to the evolving market dynamics and increased costs in the delivery of
our exams.”


The council added that the updated prices for the IELTS
range of tests will take effect from March 1.


In September 2023, the British Council increased the cost of
IELTS from about N90,000 to N107,500.


At the time, the council said the new prices were necessary
to sustain the high quality of standards for the testing experience.
