IELTS test fees
The IELTS test fee is €212.
The British Council offers IELTS tests in 29 locations across Spain. Depending on where you would like to take your test, registrations are handled by British Council offices in Barcelona, Bilbao or Madrid.
Places are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so we strongly recommend that you register online at least two months prior to the test date. Please note, once all the test places have been assigned and the session is full, the test will no longer appear on our online registration system.
You will receive an email one week before the test date confirming the venue for your test and the timetable.
The tables below show the upcoming test dates in Spain.
The speaking test can be scheduled up to seven days before or seven days after the written test date. The test is usually organised during the week before the written part of the exam or on the same day. The time will depend on your local test centre.
The exact details (including a timetable) will sent by email one week before the test date. You will also be able to access your speaking exam timetable through the candidate area.
