Victoria at Global Village Victoria

Welcome to IELTS Victoria, the official IELTS Test Centre for Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The Test Centre is located on the premises of Global Village Victoria, member of the distinguished Global Village English Centres group of schools.

As well as being Victoria’s first and only official IDP IELTS Test Centre, we also offer full-time, part-time and evening classes in IELTS preparation. IELTS Victoria is ideally situated in the centre of the capital city of British Columbia, Canada, only a minute walk from central public transit routes and seconds away from Victoria’s picturesque inner harbor as well as outdoor cafes, pubs, boutiques, restaurants and shopping malls. Nearby Vancouver and Seattle can be reached within 2-3 hours’ travel.

The test centre is well-established on the island and has been serving candidates since 2011. Our centre staff is committed to customer service, and providing the best possible conditions for candidates to do well on their IELTS Test. In addition to our Victoria location, IELTS Victoria also conducts regular testing in Nanaimo at Vancouver Island University (VIU)  to serve up island communities such as Campbell River, Courtney, Parksville, Ladysmith and Duncan.
