The University of Waikato is a small IELTS Test Centre, providing a personalised and friendly service. The Test Centre currently offers tests at Hamilton, and Tauranga.
All components of the test happen on the same day, with the Speaking test taking place in the morning, and the Listening, Reading and Writing test in the afternoon. Between the Speaking test and the afternoon session, test takers have some time to relax and prepare for the other components of the test.
