Read opinions of students from all over the world


Anna, Spain

"During the IELTS course, I learnt how to do each part of the test and improved my vocabulary and grammar too. With the tests in class you can see what your level is and what to improve. I went to the IELTS test very confident of what my results would be and I was right. In class, we learnt how to write quickly and efficiently, making yourself clear and expressing opinions from our point of view. In the Bayside IELTS course, you really learn how to do the test with lots of good tips and advice to pass it successfully.”

Rosy, Switzerland

“My 4 months at Bayside helped me start my life here in Melbourne. I really enjoyed the small building and familiar atmosphere at Bayside; I felt good and integrated. They have awesome teachers!”

Yerly, Colombia

“Before the IELTS preparation course at Bayside, I felt unprepared but after the course, I was confident about my skills. I took an English exam back home as part of my master’s degree admission and I got a good score and a scholarship. My favourite part of the course was the reading because I learned so much vocabulary. It’s a great school! The teachers have an excellent level of experience teaching IELTS. The practice IELTS tests are very good because you can know your English level.”

Catherine, France

“After my time at Bayside, I felt much more confident about the IELTS because I knew the methodology and had trained in all the different topics in class. The classes are small so the teachers can follow your progress and help you improve faster.”

Cristina, Spain

“Before I took IELTS preparation at Bayside, my score was 4.5. After my 4-week course, it was 6. The most useful part of the IELTS course for me was writing. Our teachers gave us so much vocabulary, connectors and corrections. I would definitely recommend IELTS preparation at Bayside!”

Pongsiri, Thailand

“The Bayside IELTS course really guides students to be ready for the exam. The writing lessons helped me to plan step by step for each section and I was able to solve my time management issues. With experienced and proactive teachers, Bayside students can reach their IELTS goals”

Walaikorn (Jane), Thailand

"Before the Bayside IELTS preparation course, I didn’t have any confidence about this exam. After, I understood what the exam required and I knew how to achieve the score I wanted. I really enjoyed the small classes and working with my teachers. They always consider their students, they know your weaknesses and strengths and how to improve your score.”
