Pay for your IELTS exam online

A safe and convenient way to pay.

3rd February 2015  *Problems with online payments*

Some of our customers have reported problems paying fees via the online payment link. The systems team are investigating this and have advised that we cannot currently accept payments by VISA DEBIT. Other payment cards should work successfully. 

If you are still experiencing problems, please either call in to the centre to pay in cash or send a cheque (payable to Aston University) in the post to us at the IELTS test centre address.

You can now pay for all IELTS exams using our secure online payment system. The system is quick and easy to use for students and non-students, with no requirement for registration.
