IELTS is globally recognized as proof of English language proficiency.


What is a Recognizing Organization (RO)?

A Recognizing Organization (RO) is any organization which accepts IELTS scores. Organizations which provide third party services to clients such as education, recruitment, travel, legal or migration services are not considered ROs.

You have two options for becoming an IELTS RO:

POSTAL RECOGNIZING ORGANIZATIONS

Postal ROs receive original copies of paper results via regular mail or secure courier.

 

Postal ROs can also subscribe to the IELTS Online Verification (OV) Service to verify copies of candidates’ Test Report Forms (TRF) with the central IELTS system for validity and authenticity.

SUBSCRIBING TO ELECTRONIC DOWNLOAD (STED) ROs

STED ROs benefit from paperless, electronic delivery of candidates’ results.
