The newly launched IDP-IRIS IELTS Shared Lab in Laguna is the first IELTS on Computer lab in the entire province of Laguna, and it also marks IDP’s 9th IELTS on Computer lab in the Philippines. This new lab provides test takers with a comfortable and efficient environment to take their IELTS exam on a computer and be a step closer to achieving their life goals abroad.
IDP has more than 1,500 IELTS test locations across 56 countries, including more than 280 IELTS on-computer test centers.
