Find a centre or course

Please read the below guidance before consulting the exam Centre/Course lists. You can then select another tab below to search by exam.

Where can I prepare for an IoLET exam?

  • IoLET (IoL Educational Trust) is an Awarding Organisation that creates and runs its own language exams, but it does not run taught preparation courses for these.
  • However, other organisations separate from IoLET do run taught preparation courses. These are listed for each exam in the PDF documents below, indicated in the column "Course".
  • These course providers have not been inspected for the quality of their course provision.
  • IoLET does not officially endorse or recommend any particular course.

Where can I sit an IoLET exam?

  • IoLET runs an exam centre in London (IoLET Open Centre), at which candidates can sit DipTrans, DPSI and DPI exams. This is listed in the PDF documents below.
  • In addition, other organisations separate from IoLET are registered as exam centres, at which candidates can sit DipTrans, DPSI and DPI exams. These are also listed for each exam in the PDF documents below.
  • Registered centres meet IoLET's requirements for holding IoLET exams.
  • Candidates must contact their chosen centre directly to confirm availability of space and facilities. Availability varies and is not guaranteed by IoLET or other organisations.
  • Exam centres independently determine the centre fees they charge.

Centres register and sign a Centre Agreement with IoLET on an annual basis. The agreement outlines and confirms acceptance of the General Conditions of Recognition issued by Ofqual June 2016 by both parties. Preparation course providers are independent and IoLET does not endorse, recommend or monitor preparation courses listed.

If you wish to register for an exam without attending a preparation course, it is possible to sit the exam at the British Council or a centre which accepts external candidates. Candidates must contact the centre to confirm availability of space, facilities and to request confirmation of arrangements. Alternatively, you can sit the exam at the IoLET Open Centre, London.
