We, therefore, advise all applicants considering submitting an application to urgently take either a TOEFL or an IELTS test. These tests are accepted by all partner universities. Please note that the results of your test must be done and uploaded at the time of submitting an application. We will not accept late submissions of proofs of English proficiency.
- Some of the universities accept additional tests or exemptions. We have listed this information under ”University specific language tests and exemptions”. Please note that these exceptions are not accepted by all partner universities. Even though one university may accept some other test, your second preference entry or your preferred exit universities may not. For this reason, again, we urge all applicants to take a TOEFL or an IELTS.”
