We deliver examinations on behalf of UK examination bodies in Occupied Palestinian Territories, supporting students and professionals to gain qualifications from leading academic institutions that can open doors and improve their employment prospects around the world. We offer a wide range of exams including IELTS, Aptis, school exams (International GCSE), Cambridge English, and professional and university exams.

 Last year, we delivered more than 3,500 tests through our centres across Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza.


IELTS is one of the world’s most popular high-stakes English language tests, with over three million tests taken in the past year. It is the English test of choice for educational organisations, professional associations, and employers across the world.

 We deliver IELTS on a monthly basis across our examination centres in the north (Nablus), centre (Ramallah), South (Hebron) and in Gaza. We offer two test versions: Academic and General Training. IELTS results are released 13 days after the test and the British Council can send test reports forms directly to receiving organisations.

 You can register online or through any of our offices. Once you register for the exam, you will be eligible for 30 hours of Road to IELTS training free of charge as well as free preparation material available on our website.


Aptis is a modern and flexible English language proficiency test, designed to meet the diverse needs of organisations and individuals around the world. It provides reliable, accurate reports on the English skills in your organisation. As a result, you can make better decisions about recruitment, workforce development and training needs.

 School exams:

Every year, two million people from 90 countries sit for international exams through the British Council including our offices in Occupied Palestinian Territories. Our globally recognised qualifications help students to attend the best universities, discover amazing career opportunities and set themselves up for a more rewarding life. The qualification is trusted by teachers, governments, employers and students and the British Council offers support and advice, ensuring the integrity of the exams system at every stage.

 Cambridge English:

We organise a range of Cambridge English language tests in many countries around the world, including our offices in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, and Nablus.

 Cambridge English Language Assessment exams are recognised by schools, universities, private and public sector employers all over the English-speaking world. Success in a Cambridge English exam provides you with an internationally recognised certificate showing the level you have attained in English.

  Professional and university exams:

We administer a large number of international professional exams on behalf of a variety of major UK examining bodies as well as UK universities:

  •  British professional qualifications, such as accountancy and law.
  • University exams, such as MBAs and other university degree examinations, including those related to distance learning programmes.
