About the TOEFL iBT® Test

Get the Advantage You Need to Succeed

The TOEFL iBT® test helps you stand out confidently in English, and it comes with a clear advantage — universities know you are ready to succeed.

That's why it's accepted by more than 11,500 universities and other institutions in over 160 countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United States, the U.K., and across Europe and Asia.

The test is conveniently offered via 3 testing options:

  • the traditional TOEFL iBT test in a test center
  • the TOEFL iBT Home Edition
  • the TOEFL iBT Paper Edition

It's the only test that measures all 4 academic English skills — reading, listening, speaking, and writing — the way they are actually used in a classroom. So your TOEFL® scores provide a true reflection of your abilities and show admissions officers you have what it takes to be great. See the full list of countries where the TOEFL iBT test is available.
