A notice published on the Council’s website said from February 1, 2024, applicants will N139,000 for Computer Academic and General Training Modules; N134,000 for Paper Academic and General Training Modules; N149,000 for UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI); N130,000 for Life Skills; and N87,570 for One Skill Retake (O.S.R).

The British Council in Nigeria has announced a fresh increment in the fees for its various English Language Testing System (IELTS) examinations.

A notice published on the Council’s website said from February 1, 2024, applicants will N139,000 for Computer Academic and General Training Modules; N134,000 for Paper Academic and General Training Modules; N149,000 for UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI); N130,000 for Life Skills; and N87,570 for One Skill Retake (O.S.R).

It blamed the fee hike on “increased costs in the delivery of our exams”.

IELTS is an international standardised test of English language proficiency for non-native English language speakers. It is jointly managed by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English, and was established in 1989.

It said, “We would like to inform you that there has been a review of our IELTS fees. The new price list of the IELTS range of tests offered by the British Council will be effective for registrations on or after 1 February 2024.

“The new prices will be: IELTS on Computer Academic and General Training Modules: ₦139,000

“IELTS on Paper Academic and General Training Modules: ₦134,000

“UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI): ₦149,000

“Life Skills: ₦130,000

“One Skill Retake (O.S.R): ₦87,570

“The change in price is associated with the increased costs in the delivery of our exams. This will enable us to continue to offer a wide range of services and comprehensive support to enable you achieve your goals.

“Thank you for choosing the British Council.”

Just last September, the Council increased the fee to N107,500 from about N85,000.
