British Council Hikes IELTS Fee


March 01, (THEWILL) – The British Council Nigeria has announced a hike in the price of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), for the second time in 2024.

The hike comes amidst ongoing concerns about the exchange rates of the Nigerian Naira against other foreign currencies.

An update on the Council’s website attributed the new rates to what it described as “prevailing market dynamics.”

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

The Council added that the new prices for the IELTS range of tests are effective from March 1.

With the new price adjustment, applicants willing to write IELTS computer academic and general training modules will now pay N266,000, while those opting for paper academic and general training modules are required to pay N256,500 UK visas and immigration (UKVI), applicants will pay N285,500 and IELTS life skills now costs N249,000.

The Council had only in January effected a 29 percent increment on the price of writing the test from the initial N107,500 being paid for the test before last month.

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