The Complete Test Preparation Programme

This Programme is designed for students who aim to enter a university or college in Malaysia and abroad. It combines the popular Certified Intensive English Programme (CIEP) and an IELTS Test Preparation Programme.

This Programme will quickly develop your English language proficiency and introduce you to the IELTS test through practice as well as lessons on test-taking tips and strategies.

What’s the CIEP?

The Certified Intensive English Programme is the flagship academic English programme by ELS. It is designed to teach students all of the English language skills required to succeed in higher education and beyond. Click here to find out more about the CIEP.

Can I just take the IELTS Test Preparation Programme?

Yes, you can! However, all test preparation programmes focus on teaching you the strategies and skills in taking the test – not necessarily improving your English language proficiency. This means that you may not be able to achieve an IELTS Band 5.5, for example, despite taking the test preparation programme alone.

Most of our students take the CIEP, which improves their English language proficiency first before taking the test preparation programme to learn more about the IELTS test.
