If you need IELTS for reasons such as inward migration to the UK or pre-sessional University courses, you will probably need a UKVI test. Go to Take IELTS and follow the UKVI route. It is your responsibility to ensure you book the correct test.
Non EU Candidates wishing to make direct application (not pre sessional) applications to university should be ok with a test at this centre. Candidates wishing to emigrate from the UK should also be ok. Similarly candidates applying for professional registration should be ok. However, we advise you to check with your 'end user'. Normal cancellation fee penalties apply.

EU candidates should have no problem with any use of the IELTS test from this centre with the exception of cases of naturalisation as a British citizen.
