    I would like to go to college (Fachhochschule) in Austria (Vienna) and i would like to receive some information on "English language licences" which I can add to my curriculum vitae.

    Where could I take the examinations?

    For university study, IELTS and TOEFL are the most common English language tests. You can get more information here:

    Re: licence/certificate

    I want to elevate the level of my curriculum vitae so that I have better chances of getting picked in Fachhochschule.

    IELTS and TOEFL, what is the difference exactly? With which should I start?
    I have just scanned the homepage but would you be so kind and give me a general idea.






    I cant open the links below, they require a password...

    Do I have to buy some of these books or Cds to pass the test?

    Basically IELTS is from the University of Cambridge in association with Australian and TOEFL is American, so it depends which way the university leans as to which they prefer. In my experience, European institutions will accept both, but the individual place may have a preference. In both cases, the specifics of the exam means that preparation in the things practised is essential, so practicebooks would make sense, though there are many for both. Amazo or your bookshop will be able to supply them. Stick to the big publishing houses and you'll get stuff that covers what you need to know.

    Try the link again- it should work. (No password required)
