Test dates and locations

We currently run one or two IELTS tests per month in Kigali.

Places are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so we strongly recommend that you register online as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. You will receive a confirmation letter, confirming the venue for your test and the timetable.

The speaking test is conducted one or two days prior to the written test. The exact information will be confirmed in the timetable you receive by post approximately two weeks before the test.

Please note registration deadlines are subject to availability. Once all the test places have been assigned and the session is full, the test will no longer appear on our online registration system


The IELTS test takes place at The British Council Rwanda office,Kigali,Kacyiru,KG5 Ave, 82 Gasabo District, Sector Kacyiru, House no.129.
