JAPA: British Council Releases New IELTS Fee for 2024

There is a targeted reaction by those aspiring to migrate to the United Kingdom in the year 2024, following the increased fee for the English Language Testing System examinations by 29%.

This is as the British Council in Nigeria again announced the new fee for the IELTS.

According to a notice published on the councils’ website, applicants will now pay the sum of N139,000 for the Computer Academic and General Training Modules from February 1, 2024.

The examination is widely accepted globally by non-native English speakers as evidence of their language proficiency.

The council blamed the change in fee on the hike in the costs of conducting the examination.

“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.

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

“Thank you for choosing the British Council,” the notice read.

This is the second time in five months the price has been jerked.

In September 2023, the Council increased the fee for the examination from between N80,000 to N90,000 to N107,500.
