Cambridge University Press, Cambridge Assessment English and Kaplan Test Prep collaborate

July 9, 2019 | Kaplan Test Prep

Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment English, who together provide official preparation materials for Cambridge English Qualifications and IELTS (International English Language Testing System) have partnered with Kaplan Test Prep, a premier provider of educational services, to deliver livestreamed and online preparation courses for IELTS. Using official Cambridge IELTS content from Cambridge Assessment English – the producer of the test – the courses provide comprehensive preparation at a time and pace that suits the learner.

The livestreamed course begins in July, while the online IELTS preparation course launches in August. Both are available for enrollment now.

More than 3.5 million IELTS tests are taken each year, making it the world’s most popular high-stakes English language test for higher education admissions and global migration. IELTS scores are trusted by over 10,000 organizations globally, including over 3,400 academic institutions in the United States. IELTS is designed to test the language ability of people who want to study or work where English is used as the language of communication, and is jointly owned by the British Council, IDP: IELTS Australia and Cambridge Assessment English.

Pamela Baxter, CEO at Cambridge Exams Publishing, producer of official Cambridge preparation materials, explained, “Learners will now be able to get the best of our IELTS preparation materials delivered with the flexibility to suit their busy lives. With these courses, learners can be confident they are getting the most out of their preparation time.”

“We are excited to partner with Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment English to develop these new offerings for English language learners worldwide,” said Steven Marietti, President, Licensure division, Kaplan Test Prep. “The courses will combine Kaplan’s unparalleled student-focused expertise in test preparation, learning science, digital learning and instruction with their unique combination of expertise in teaching, learning and assessment.”

This builds on more than 35 years of experience and expertise that Kaplan International English has in delivering face-to-face IELTS test preparation for many thousands of students from more than 150 countries.
