2014 has been another successful one for PTE Academic. We have established 51 new test centres this year worldwide. PTE Academic is seeing growth of test centres in India, Iraq, Brazil and Turkey as well as Nigeria and Australia. Recent changes to government regulations in regions such as Australia, India and Turkey has seen PTE Academic being accepted more widely and PTE Academic test centres increasing to meet higher demand.

Important changes from DIBP  in Australia (November 2014)  allow a greater range of visas to be applied for using PTE Academic which will allow many more non-native test takers to apply for a visa using PTE Academic as proof of English language competency.

A total of 16 new centres have opened in India alone as demand increases for PTE Academic.

YBU test centre in Turkey was our first university test centre partnership in Turkey and we have also opened four further test centres. PTE Academic test centres are located in Istanbul, Ankara, Diyarbakir and Denizli.

In Iraq, we have been developing strong partnerships with universities and government bodies such as HCED and KRG HCDP. A new centre has been established in Iraq which sees a tripartite agreement with the University of Leicester and the University if Kufa in Iraq. Three further test centres have been opened in Iraq (see below).

In Nigeria, eight new test centres have been established as demand grows for PTE Academic in this region.

INCREASED STUDY LOCATIONS FOR TEST TAKERS

A continued area of success has been the growth of universities and institutions that accept PTE Academic as proof of English proficiency. Over 200 new universities, colleges, departments and professional bodies worldwide have accepted PTE Academic this year, including London School of Economics, Imperial College London and McGill University.
